This Red cabbage salad with mango is probably one of the easiest salads there is. You need red cabbage, mango, lime zest (zest), lime juice, fresh coriander, a few drops of oil and a pinch of salt. That’s it. The fruits turn the normal red cabbage salad into a wonderfully refreshing and colorful winter salad with tropical influences.

Salad recipe from a friend with Shichimi Togarashi
I took over this beautiful creation from my dear friend Anna. When we hosted a taco evening, it was your delicious contribution. And the red cabbage salad with mango tasted incredibly good in soft tacos! She used a secret spice that gives the salad an unexpected taste. Or maybe you know it: it’s called Shichimi Togarashi. Or you know it as the Japanese seven-spice chili pepper. It contains red chillies, Japanese pepper, white and black sesame seeds, orange peel, ginger and nori (seaweed). With this fantastic spice you can give every dish a sharp and hearty aroma.
Tips for red cabbage salad with mango
So if the Shichimi Togarashi Spice mixture goes so well with this salad, then of course you can also use a simple mixture of red chili spices. But if you have an Asian shop nearby, then I would recommend you to try the magical Japanese spice mixture. And since I have now also found that the red cabbage salad with mango goes so well with tacos with guacamole, you can also add a few slices of avocado to the salad.
Tacos as a test meal
A taco night like this is really good for testing flavors and ingredients. That’s why I know that chicken breast goes well with this salad. You can also serve the delicious red cabbage salad as a side dish to your next snack (Swabian: “Veschper”). And it also goes well with grilled fish or as a splash of color on the table at your next family gathering. In fact, I’d say it looks so Christmassy that it qualifies for Christmas dinner. And if you still miss something crispy, you can add a handful of unsalted roasted cashew nuts or peanuts.
