  • 5 Tbsp. Sweet Jerk Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 2 tsp. canola oil

Kale and radicchio can also be briefly grilled for a charred, smoky flavor.


Mix Sweet Jerk Barbecue Sauce and coconut milk in a small bowl to make the dressing and set aside. Add shredded coconut and cashews to a medium pan on medium-low heat and toast for 3 to 5 min., or until fragrant and most of the coconut is lightly browned. Transfer toasted coconut and cashews to a small bowl and return pan to heat, adding oil and turning up the heat to high. Add radicchio or endive to hot pan, cut-side down, and cook 2 to 3 min, or until lightly browned. Remove to cutting board and cook kale, rounded-side down, for 2 to 3 min., or until bright green and lightly browned. Slice radicchio or endive and kale into 1/2-inch pieces and add to large bowl. Toss with reserved dressing and shredded carrots. Top with mango, toasted coconut and cashews, and scallions.
