Best Ever Tropical Slaw

This is one of my favourite salads, ever. I originally put the recipe together for an ebook but as it's best when it contains cheese and sour cream (I tried several combinations). It just wasn't going to work as a dairy free option in the way I wanted it to - so I'm sharing it for free instead

This is a colourful and tasty side that goes amazing with steak or chicken with a delicious sweetness coming from the mango (my favourites are the Calypsos or R2E2's both from Australia) but it's also nice with pineapple too. Enjoy!


6-8 servings | Gluten Free



1 small green cabbage, shredded

1 large carrot, peeled and grated

3 stalks spring onion, finely sliced

large handful fresh coriander, chopped

1 Australian mango, peeled and diced

0.75 cup grated tasty cheese
0.5 cup quality mayonnaise
0.25 cup sour cream
juice of 2-3 limes
quality salt and ground black pepper

  • Combine the shredded cabbage, grated cheese and carrots, sliced spring onions and capscium, diced mango and roughly chopped  coriander in a large bowl.

  • Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over the cabbage mixture and using clean hands, to thoroughly combine. Taste for seasoning and add more if desired.

  • Cover and refrigerator for at least 1.5 hours before serving.
