Asian Mango Slaw
This is a fun new twist on an old summer stand by - coleslaw. I prefer vinegar-dressed slaw, and I am a huge fan of Asian-inspired salads. This one adds mango for a sweet addition and crunchy almonds and sesame seeds round out the flavors and textures.
Another thing I love about this salad is that it's easily transportable. I needed this for an evening function (where it got rave reviews, by the way!), so I took the pieces and parts to work and then assembled it there.
For the dressing, combine the soy sauce,
sesame oil and lime juice. Whisk well to combine.
Then toast the almonds and sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat.
To assemble the salad, pour the coleslaw into a large bowl then add the green onions
and the mango.
Pour the dressing in,
and toss well to coat all the slaw. Top with the almonds and sesame seeds.
Stir up your summer salad rotation with this one!
