Hot and Fruity Caribbean Coleslaw

Hot and Fruity Caribbean Coleslaw

A million miles away from those heavy creamy coleslaws, this is one to wake up your taste buds. It’s fruity, hot and even healthy. I could eat this just on its own, it’s so delicious. And it’s a wonderful contrast to all that hot barbecued meat. Make a big bowlful!

 

For how many? Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Savoy cabbage
  • 1/2 white cabbage
  • 1/2 red onion, peeled
  • 1/2 small mango
  • 3 tsp French mustard
  • 100ml cider vinegar
  • 8 tbsp soft light brown sugar
  • 100ml olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp X Hot Reggae Reggae Sauce or hot chilli sauce
  • 2 red chillies, seeded and cut into fine slivers

Instructions

Remove and discard the cabbage cores and finely shred the leaves. Slice the onion wafer-thin using a mandolin if you have one. Peel the mango and cut the flesh into matchsticks.

Put the mustard, vinegar and sugar in a jam jar. Screw on the lid and give it a good shake. Add the oil, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Shake again then poor into a large serving bowl. Toss in the cabbage, onion, mango and chillies and mix well. Taste for seasoning.
