This is a colorful and delicious "slaw" with lots of interesting tastes and textures. I especially like the addition of "pepitas", or shelled pumpkin seeds. Serve with fried or baked corn tortilla strips. This recipe is originally from The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas.
- 1 small mango, peeled, pitted, diced (I've also used mango nectar, but it's not as thick as pureed mango)
- 1⁄2 cup grapefruit juice
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (a fresh minced serrano pepper is good, too!)
- 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 garlic clove
- salt and pepper
