Tangy Slaw Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Vegenaise
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1.5 tablespoons red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar or white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • coarsely ground black pepper (to taste)

Coleslaw Ingredients

  • 6 cups thinly sliced (shredded) cabbage
  • other vegetables, optional*

Optional Toppings

  • 1 handful cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds
  • hot pepper flakes or squirt of sriracha


To Make the Vega Slaw Dressing

  • Whisk together the slaw dressing ingredients. Taste and adjust to suit your preference.

To Make the Coleslaw

  • Shred cabbage* (approximately half of a smalls head). We like green and purple. Use a mandolin if you have one or slice thin with a knife.
  • Add grated carrots, thinly-sliced red peppers, shaved radish, chopped green onion, shaved Brussels sprouts, bean sprouts or any other other fresh veggies you enjoy.
  • *Alternatively, grab a bag of coleslaw mix at the store and skip the prep altogether.
  • Toss dressing with the slaw to combine.
  • Top with toasted sunflower seeds, chopped cilantro, and a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes.


Cabbage mix - when you are short on time, grab a bag of slaw mix from the grocery store.
Acid - sub red wine vinegar with balsamic vinegar or white vinegar.
Herbs - add fresh chopped herbs or a sprinkle of dry oregano for an extra boost of flavor.
