Do you ever find yourself getting tired of the “same ole’ same ole””? Me too!
We recently went on a little sailboat trip to Cape Lookout, NC, and my hubby caught a load of spanish mackerel fish. I fried those bad boys up last night! Now, if you’re a southerner like me, you know that you can’t eat fried fish without coleslaw (& baked beans!)
So I added a little “tropical flare” to my coleslaw & made mango coleslaw.
I like to slice my lettuce really thin with a sharp knife instead of shredding it into “slush”; it’s your prerogative as to how you like your cabbage in your coleslaw!
And I used a little coconut juice to sweeten things up a little…
I highly suggest you try this recipe if you’re looking to break away from the ordinary “coleslaw”. Take it to your next pig pickin’ or fish fry you attend; it will be a welcomed variation from traditional coleslaw! 🙂
- 3 cups shredded or thinly sliced savoy cabbage (or green cabbage)
- 1 mango, peeled & cubed (about 1¼ cup)
