Nutritional values

Just under two thirds of your daily vitamin E requirement is provided by one serving! The fat-soluble vitamin is considered a natural skin protection from the outside and inside. The fibre, which is also abundant, promotes a healthy blood sugar level.

Particularly hearty and a little bit more fibre: Use wholemeal breadcrumbs, which, by the way, can be made from stale wholemeal rolls (ideal for this: food processor).

Kitchen utensils

1 Cutting board, 1 Small knife, 1 Citrus juicer, 1 large Bowl, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Whisk, 1 Large knife, 1 Peeler, 1 Salad server, 1 Plastic wrap, 1 Meat mallet (or heavy-bottomed pot), 3 deep Plates (or shallow bowls), 1 Fork, 1 large Non-stick pan, 1 Slotted spatula, 1 Paper towel

Preparation steps

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 1

Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice. Measure 3 tablespoons juice and place in a large bowl.

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 2

Add mayonnaise, mustard, 1 tablespoon of canola oil and yogurt. Whisk until smooth and season with salt, pepper and 1 pinch of sugar. 

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 3

Rinse both of the cabbages and cut out cores. Cut cabbages in half, then into very thin strips.

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 4

Peel the mango, cut flesh off of the pit and coarsely chop flesh. Peel and finely chop the onion.

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 5

Mix the red and white cabbage, mango and onion with the yogurt-mustard dressing and let stand for 30 minutes. 

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 6

Meanwhile, rinse turkey cutlets, pat dry with paper towels and cut each in half crosswise to create 8 smaller cutlets. 

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 7

Place turkey cutlets on a layer of plastic wrap. Cover with another layer of plastic wrap and flatten the cutlets with a meat mallet. Season cutlets with salt and pepper.

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 8

Crack eggs into a deep plate and whisk with a fork. On a separate plate, mix breadcrumbs and sesame seeds. Place flour on a third plate.

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 9

Roll turkey cutlets in flour and gently tap to remove excess flour. Dip flour-coated cutlets in the egg mixture and then the breadcrumb mixture. Ensure that all the cutlets are evenly coated with breadcrumbs. 

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 10

Heat the remaining canola oil in a large non-stick pan. Fry cutlets over medium heat until golden brown and cooked through, 2-3 minutes on each side (if necessary, divide into in 2 batches, using half of the oil for each batch). 

Colorful Mango Cabbage Salad preparation step 11

Drain the cutlets on paper towels. Season the mango salad to taste with salt and pepper and serve with the turkey cutlets.
