Carrot Slaw with Mango Chutney Dressing

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

Mango chutney gives the tart-sweet dressing for this slaw a mysterious complexity. Use your favorite chutney or try Patak’s brand, which is widely available and very tasty.

Although I designed this salad to accompany either the Tomato-Chickpea Curry in Eggplant Shells or the Skillet Grain Medley with Curried Tempeh, it is versatile enough to serve at a picnic or a potluck.

Yield: 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

Mango chutney dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons sweet mango chutney
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Carrot slaw:

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and shredded (about 4 cups)
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced scallion greens
  • Additional lime juice, if needed
  • Additional salt, if needed
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted, salted peanuts, for garnish (optional)

Directions

1. In a blender, puree the dressing ingredients, using 2 tablespoons of water, until very smooth. Blend in additional water if the dressing is too thick to coat the carrots.

2. In a large bowl, toss the carrots, cilantro, and scallions with the dressing. Add more lime juice and salt, if needed. Garnish with peanuts, if you wish.
