This is different twist on cabbage slaw. It's very easy and the mango and honey make it sweet; no sugar in this recipe! Great by itself or wrap a corn tortilla around grilled tilapia and top with this cilantro slaw for a great-tasting fish taco! For a bit thicker dressing you can add additional mayonnaise.

This was good! NOTE: Try not to make this too far in advance b/c it does get super watery. Great flavor combo and I agree that this would be awesome served on top of fish tacos. I plan to try this that way next time as I just served this a a side to chicken sandwiches tonight. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I made this salad for a family party; everyone loved it. As a previous reviewer mentioned this salad is very watery. You start off with a large bowl of cabbage and over time moisture is emitted from the cabbage as it ferments. So the size of the salad reduces quite bit. I did not have mangos so I added mandarin oranges. Although I added the fruit at the very end this probably added to the moisture also. All in all this is a very tasty salad and I will definitely make it again. Read More

My friend made this recipe twice and I loved it. I just marinated the shredded cabbage in the dressing for an hour and then tossed in the other ingredients. I love the fresh cilantro zing. Read More

So good with with pan fried cod and homemade pico wrapped in a flour tortilla. I used two kinds of cabbage instead of the pre-packaged type and omitted the celery poppy and green onion. Read More
