Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw

weight lossEnjoy this easy slaw as a weekday lunch – pack the dressing separately or toss it in before you leave the house in the morning and let it soak up. Yum!

Servings: 6 

Serving Size: Approx 1/2 cup

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 mango, not fully ripe so it doesn’t get too “mushy”
  • 3 medium scallions, chopped
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce*
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp black and white sesame seeds

Directions:

Julienne the mango (cut into strips). Combine with the cabbage, carrots, scallions and toss together in a large bowl.

Prepare the dressing by whisking together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and lime juice; slowly whisk in the oil.

Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to coat. If possible, let it sit at least 15-20 minutes to let the dressing soak in.

Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds – black sesame seeds make a nice contrast.

TIP: Use bagged cabbage and carrot mix and store-bought cut mango for quicker preparation.
