Mango Peanut Slaw #SundaySupper

Mango Peanut Slaw 057

Happy Sunday Supper everyone! Today’s theme is Summer BBQ Party – a wonderful theme since I think we can all agree that summer bbq parties (or summer cook-outs, whichever nomenclature you prefer) are one of the most fun things ever. Growing up, such parties were a fixture on the calendar. Sometimes my parents were hosting, sometimes we were guests, but it seemed like there was one on the schedule almost every weekend of the summer. And they’re such a blast.

I chose to make this delicious side dish for three reasons: 1) coleslaw of some kind is a summer bbq staple everywhere; 2) seeing as this is Asian-flavored, it’s a little bit outside the box for your typical American summer bbq, which appealed to me; and 3) it uses mangos, which are beautifully in season in my area right now, and I’m trying to use up all the summer produce I can, while I still can.

But I’m actually trying to use all that summer produce in some savory dishes for once. I usually bake desserts or sweet breakfast goods with it, which is always delicious, of course. But this summer I wanted to challenge myself to find more savory uses for this luscious summer produce. Not that there won’t also be sweets on the blog this summer. I mean, please…

Source: adapted from Man Made Meals by Steven Raichlen

2 generous tbs sambal chile paste, or to taste
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
3 tbs sugar
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup Asian fish sauce or soy sauce
1 small (about 1 lb.) head green cabbage
1 ripe mango
18 slender green beans (hericots verts)
½ cup coarsely chopped cilantro
1/3 cup coarsely chopped dry-roasted peanuts, salted or unsalted

First make the dressing: in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sambal, garlic, sugar, black pepper, and fish sauce. Set aside.
Split the cabbage into quarters, and core each section. Thinly slice it with a sharp knife, or I prefer a mandoline slicer. Peel and pit the mango, then slice it into thin strips. To the bowl with the dressing, add the cabbage, mango, green beans, and cilantro. Toss well to combine. Garnish with the peanuts and serve.

  27. Coleslaw is my favorite BBQ side…but I gotta tell ya…this looks better!

  28. Oh, I’m totally the same way–“You mean all produce DOESN’T get baked into yummy desserts all the time?” That’s why I made a savory dish, too–though I also prefer mine slightly sweet at the same time! I love the idea of mango peanut slaw–sweet, tangy, and nutty. Just what I need for my summer BBQ–and I think it’d go awesome with the Asian-flair sweet/tangy/nutty pasta I made this time, too. YAY US. Awesome to meetcha 🙂

  29. I am a HUGE fan of Asian slaws and yours is no exception!

  30. I am totally digging this combination of flavors … your slaw is going on my to-make list ASAP!

  31. YAY a slaw recipe! This one is such a welcome change from what I usually make. I would imagine the mango and chile paste pairing so well and the peanuts are a bonus. Thank you for making this for us!

  32. I am not normally a slaw person but I love everything in this dish so I can’t wait to give it a try.

  34. do you have a recipe that you love this with ?? I’m trying to imagine what I’d put it with… maybe a salmon burger? I love it either way! Gets me thinking! 🙂

  35. I love coleslaw, but I’ve never had it like this before! So creative and sounds yummmy!

  36. Morgan loves coleslaw, and I’ll bet he’s going to love the Asian spin on this one!
