Great coleslaw - it's definitely a combination of sweet and tangy! I love the vibrant colors and mix of flavors. I used a bag of coleslaw mix and 2 mangos vs. 1. I also added about 1/2 cup of raisins for contrast and they paired nicely with the walnuts. I mixed the dressing basically dissolving the sugar in the rice vinegar - taste it before you mix it in if you don't like it before it goes over the salad you'll ruin the whole thing. I mixed everything and let it set overnight. It was a great accompaniment to grilled pork tenderloin. Read More

I was looking for a fresh recipe to use my mango but this slaw is a bit bland. I found it too sweet. I did add a bit of light mayo as a binder. It was OK but I won't make it again. Read More

The combination of cabbage mangos and walnut was very good. The recipe called for too much dressing. I'm thinking of making the dressing a little different with something other than just vinegar. The dressing was a little tart. Read More

I've made this three times so far and each time my partner who doensn't like fruit salad loved it! I like it because it's simple and easy and tastes great. It's even better I find if I let it sit for about 30 mins in the refrigerator beforehand to let the flavors meld together. Read More

Fabulous combination! This will be a regular on my table as long as I can find fresh mangoes! My only criticism is that the recipe makes too much dressing so next time I'll either double the veggies or halve the dressing. Read More

This is going to go PERFECTLY with my barbecued short ribs that I am fixing today. I picked it because it calls for ZERO oil or mayo. If you like a tangy cole slaw you will love this. I heeded what others said and used the same amount of dressing in twice the amount of cabbage. Read More

I ommitted the onion and walnuts and used celery instead. Also I used real sugar instead of Splenda. This has a very pungent flavor and there is plenty of dressing so I think I would cut back next time. Overall this is unique and very healthy....would make again. Read More
