Chili-Mango Bok Choy Slaw Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson |

What a combination – the heat from the chili sauce, the sweetness from the mango, and the crunch from all the vegetables make for a texture and flavor explosion. The dressing has a hint of nutty sesame oil and tamari adds a wonderful depth of flavor. Baby bok choy is perfect for this slaw, as the larger variety is not as tender when raw and has a more distinct cabbage flavor. This is a great spin on traditional cole slaw; the Asian influences really shine here. Try this slaw alongside seared scallops, grilled trout burgers, or roasted pork tenderloin.
