Cabbage & Mango We're Moving!

I've been thinking of how to tell you we're moving. How about with a slaw? I guess it's as good of a way as any. Can you tell I'm avoiding some intense feelings here? So first, here is a delicious mixed cabbage and mango slaw - full of cilantro, mint, sweet, and spice. It's really yummy.

But the big, huge, overwhelming, crazy news is that we're moving to Martha's Vineyard....yup, the island.

I'm not ready to get into it. I can't yet describe how I'm feeling. Sometimes I'm full of excitement and adventure and other times I'm so sad I could choke. Luckily a warm house, loving friends, and a new job for my husband are awaiting us on this little island. I hope my boys are happy here and we can feel at home quickly.

 Cabbage-Mango Slaw

juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp hot sesame oil (if you don't have hot sesame oil mix some toasted sesame oil with red pepper flakes)
1 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp olive oil

7 leaves of savoy baggage, finely shredded
1/2 purple cabbage, finely shredded
2 mangoes, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 1/2 cups cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
1 cup roasted and salted peanuts, roughly chopped

Easy. First, whisk dressing ingredients together. Then, toss cabbage, mango, mint, and cilantro with the dressing. It's best to dig in and use your hands. When ready to serve, top bowls with crushed peanuts. I found the slaw tasted best 5-6 hours after tossing. It was soft and flavorful but not soggy.

  1. I am so happy to have found your blog. Your pictures make food look appetizing and enticing. I'm in a food rut and am looking forward to exploring your blog for new ideas.

    Ah, the Vineyard... words can't say what the Island means to me. My blog title says it all I've been going there all my life (68 years). I'm looking forward to hearing more about your adventures of MV.
