Super Summery Mango Slaw

June 17, 2012

This mango slaw from Sweet Sugarbean is the perfect summer salad.  Crunchy, sweet, and refreshing, this slaw is composed of a mixture of red cabbage, mango, red pepper, and peanuts.  The whole dish is brought together with an Asian inspired maple-lime vinaigrette.  This dish would be a delicious accompaniment to maple-glazed baby back ribs or served with a piece of grilled salmon.  Mango slaw with maple-lime vinaigrette is a must-make dish of the season.
