Mango, Cabbage, and Cashew Cole Slaw

This is a delicious alternative to a side vegetable to serve with asian food. ¬†I find it’s a particularly good combination for fish. ¬†Adapted from Smitten Kitchen.



  • 2 mangos, peeled, pitted, and sliced into tiny slivers (julienned using a mandolin is best)
