red cabbage, mango and coconut slaw

  • 500g red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 green mangoes, peeled and shredded+
  • 2 eschalots, thinly sliced 
  • 1 cup shaved fresh coconut, toasted++ 
  • 2 cups Thai basil leaves 
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced 

coconut dressing

  • ⅓ cup (80ml) coconut water 
  • ¼ cup (65g) shaved palm sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce 
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  1. To make the coconut dressing, place the coconut water, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice in a bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved. 
  2. Place the cabbage, mango, eschalots and dressing in a bowl and toss to combine. Transfer the slaw to a serving dish and top with the shaved coconut, basil and green onion to serve. Serves 4.

+ To shred  green mango, use a julienne peeler. This looks like a conventional vegetable peeler, but has little ‘teeth’ that help create strips of vegetables.

++ Prepare fresh coconut by inserting a metal skewer in the indented eye to drain the juice. Cook in a 200°C oven for 10 minutes to soften the shell, then carefully crack with a hammer. Gently prise the flesh from the shell using a butter knife and shave with a vegetable peeler.
