Avocado Mango Cole Slaw
SUMMER, I AM READY FOR YOU. Now that I made this avocado mango cole slaw that screams Summer BBQ, I am ready. Just kidding! We live in Texas. I hate summer! Summer in Texas makes me want to crawl back to my beautiful lake-filled-cool-summer-nights Wisconsin roots. Texas has a lot to offer, but in my opinion Summer just isn’t one of them.
But, talk about a fun way to add color to cole slaw. Cole Slaw is sort of notoriously bland looking. We all love it, but it looks boring/borderline gross in the picnic setup. So, here’s mine with lots of fun color and flavor. Tip – the cabbage blend at Trader Joe’s is a great base. Love the mix and pretty purple cabbage!
- 4 cups cabbage/cole slaw blend
- 1 cup chopped mango
- 1 avocado
- 1/4 cup light mayo
- 1/4 cup buttermilk (or 1/4 milk with a dash of lemon juice)
- 1.5 tablespoons white vinegar
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher/coarse salt
- poppyseeds (optional).
Make the dressing by combining the mayo, buttermilk, vinegar, sugar, salt and poppy seeds. Mix in the cabbage and mango. Let marinate for at least 1 hour. Prior to serving, add in the chopped avocado.
