This Fresh Mango Avocado Coleslaw is such a flavorful and colorful summer salad! We will be eating this delicious side dish all summer!
Fresh Mango Avocado Coleslaw
We had some leftover mango from another dinner this week so I made up this delicious mango avocado coleslaw! This is such a flavorful and fresh summer salad, we brought a big bowl of this to a barbecue and it was a huge hit. By the way, this does make a pretty big bowl so feel free to half the recipe if you are making it for just a few people.
Make It A Meal
We have made this two ways now, once as a side dish and once as a meal with sliced grilled chicken over the top. Both ways are so good. I have a feeling we will be making this a lot this summer! And the best part is, it is low in calories!
When it comes to picking the best fresh ingredients for this dish, it all starts with the right mangos and the right avocados. When picking the right mango from your grocery store, gently squeeze the fruit to see if it will give just a little. If it does, that’s a good indication of soft flesh inside. You can also sniff the stem area of the mango. If it gives off a fruity aroma, it is likely ripe.
As for avocados, you don’t want to rely on color to determine ripeness. Some avocados simply have a darker color than others. Instead, you’ll once again need to rely on the gentle pressure test. A ready-to-eat avocado should feel soft, but not mushy. If you’re buying in advance, you can allow it to ripen for a couple of days before using.
Two Peas In A Pod
Mango and avocado go well together. In fact, in a couple of our recipes they’re like two peas in a pod.
