Mango Slaw Tips

How do you cut a mango?

It’s easy to peel a mango without a slicer if you know the correct technique! Start by holding the mango upright and slicing off the two sides, avoiding the large pit in the center. Score the flesh of each half in a crisscross pattern without cutting through the skin. Finally, push the skin-side out and use a knife or spoon to separate the mango cubes from the skin.

How do you serve mango slaw?

Mango slaw adds a tropical flair to any number of dishes. Add it as a topping for fish tacos and rice bowls, or serve it alongside rich coconut curries, noodle dishes or other tropical recipes. It’s a fantastic side dish for lightening up rich grilled meats or roasted vegetables. Plus, there are a ton of mango health benefits, making this slaw a great addition to any meal.

How long does mango slaw last in the fridge?

Mango slaw lasts about 3 days in the refrigerator. Store it in an airtight container and drain out any excess liquid before serving.
