When you’re involved in regards to the supposed warmth or spiciness of Caribbean meals, know which you could at all times modify the quantity of pepper and spices you employ to your private liking. Moreover, as we see with basic Jamaican jerk, you possibly can at all times go along with a pairing which praise the dish and usher in that type of cooling impact. This Caribbean model coleslaw is simply that. A slight kick from the minced scotch bonnet and mustard powder, however the creaminess from the mayo-combo and the fruity flavors of the mango and pineapple will provide you with a pleasant end.
4-5 cups shredded cabbage
3/4 cup purple cabbage
1 cup shredded carrot
3/4 cup diced pineapple
1 cup mango (sliced skinny)
3 tablespoon diced pink onion
1/4 scotch bonnet pepper diced finely (no seeds)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup miracle whip (or mayo)
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
3 tablespoon pineapple juice (or vinegar)
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 lemon (juice)
Notice: Please bear in mind to put on gloves and wash your arms with cleaning soap and water instantly after dealing with scotch bonnet peppers. I used Miracle Whip as an alternative of conventional Mayo as I benefit from the tangy taste of the whip, however you should utilize your fav mayo. IMPORTANT – this recipe is posted underneath vegetarian, so do take into account that you’ll want to make use of a vegetarian substitute for the mayo. it is usually posted underneath gluten free, so do ensure you undergo the ingredient record to confirm that every one the components listed are okay along with your gluten free weight loss plan (particularly the Mayo)
There are two steps to the recipe. Step 1 is to organize the fruit and veggies and Step 2 is principally making the dressing and mixing all the pieces collectively.
For a little bit of texture I grate 1/2 the quantity of cabbage, then utilizing my cooks knife I shred the remainder of it. It’s additionally necessary to finely cube the onion so that you by no means get a big piece of onion whereas eating.. could be a bit overpowering.
Combine all of the components talked about above for the dressing in a bowl (I like utilizing a whisk for this step) and put aside. Then in a big bowl, place the shredded cabbage.. you’ll discover that I used a little bit of purple cabbage as properly. Don’t add an excessive amount of of the purple cabbage as it would discolor your complete coleslaw as you combine all the pieces collectively. Add all the opposite components, high with the salt and blend within the dressing we made. Give all the pieces a very good combine and set within the fridge to sit back a bit earlier than serving.
Keep in mind to retailer in a cool place (cooler with ice) should you’re taking this to a picnic this summer time because the dressing can go unhealthy with extreme warmth. If in case you have it within the fridge for just a few hours you have to to provide it a very good combine earlier than serving as you’ll discover what appears to be like like water on the floor (that’s regular).
With the good flavors of the diced mango and pineapple you’ll discover that this isn’t your primary coleslaw and I encourage you to make use of different fruits you want… apple, peach.. be artistic.
