A Little Batty Lunch with Apple Mango Coleslaw
Eek my brand new CuteZcute Animal Palz mini sandwich cutter arrived in the mail! I’m very excited! I need to do a deep dive and get you all a full review of this product but I could not resist dipping my toes in for a sneak preview. So although I really wanted to share the idea of a simple apple mango coleslaw today, I just had to press the “bat” cutter into my sandwich to share my enthusiasm! Look for that full review coming soon.
Now apple mango coleslaw, you want to know right?
For me coleslaw is a summer staple. It reminds me of drive up restaurants, the kind that are only open in the summer. You know when you order fried clams or even a big bacon cheeseburger and you get that big spoonful of coleslaw on the side? Some people love it and some hate it! Some coleslaws are creamy and sweet while others are tangy with more of a vinegar taste. Which do you prefer? Too bad it isn’t summer anymore!
I decided to bring coleslaw into fall by adding in the quintessential fall fruit, apples! I didn’t stop there however, I added mango too! This was seriously so easy! I started with a bag of pre-shredded rainbow slaw mix (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and red cabbage). I then added chopped gala apples and chopped mangos both cut matchstick style and dressed it. You can make your own traditional coleslaw dressing, you can use your favorite salad dressing or cheat like I did and use a premixed dressing like Marzetti’s All Natural Slaw Dressing. Do be cautious to have a light hand with the dressing! The end result is so simple, sweet, colorful and delicious! This makes an awesome kid friendly side dish in lunches since the fruit adds a nice sweet punch!
Oh Yeah this apple mango coleslaw recipe is gluten-free (when made with the Marzetti’s All Natural Slaw Dressing (be sure your dressing is gluten-free)!
