Not your grandmother’s coleslaw, this recipe is quick and nutritious. You can use coleslaw mix (and we’ve been known to do that when in a rush), but we think it’s worth the extra time to buy fresh red cabbage and make your own mix.
You’ll need a blender to make the dressing. You can save time by using precut frozen mango chunks, but we still prefer fresh, since the dressing is only as good as the mango. We strongly encourage you to buy 2 mangoes a few days early, and leave them on the counter to ripen. When you’re ready to make the dressing, cut one and taste it. If it’s not full of flavor, get rid of it and use the other. If they’re both good, great! You can eat one for dessert.
