Colorful Caribbean Coleslaw with Citrus Dressing is bursting with bright tropical flavors.

If you’re like me, you are hanging on to every bit of summer. I wanted to make a coleslaw recipe that sings of summer. Bright, cheerful, and refreshing.

I also wanted to make a Jerk Turkey Burger and knew this would pair perfectly.

It’s a Win-Win!

You can mix and match the ingredients you include in this slaw. I knew I wanted to include mango to give it the Caribbean vibe. I also wanted the crunch that shredded carrots deliver.

The Caribbean Coleslaw Ingredients

  • Green cabbage
  • Purple cabbage
  • Red bell pepper
  • Mango
  • Shredded carrots
  • Jalapeno
Colorful Caribbean Coleslaw with Citrus Dressing

For the Citrus Dressing I used mayonnaise as my base. You could certainly go with a more tangy vinegar based dressing. The fresh orange juice really adds the citrus pop.

The Citrus Dressing Ingredients

  • Mayonnaise
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Orange juice
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Salt & pepper

This citrus dressing is light with bright bursts of orange flavor. You can adjust the hot sauce to give it a little kick.

The Method

  • Shred or fine dice ingredients
  • Toss with dressing
  • Serve

Because sometimes simple is all you need!
