Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 0 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes



- 1/2 head of green cabbage, thinly sliced

- 2 large carrots, grated

- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

For the Vegan Coleslaw Dressing:

- 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise

- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

- 1 tablespoon maple syrup

- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed

- Salt and pepper to taste

- Fresh dill, for garnish



1. Begin by prepping your fresh produce. Thinly slice half a head of crisp green cabbage, grate 2 large carrots, and finely slice half a red onion. Place them in a large mixing bowl, ready for the vegan coleslaw transformation.

2. In a smaller bowl, craft the heart of this vegan recipe—the tangy coleslaw dressing. Whisk together a creamy blend of 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon each of apple cider vinegar and Dijon mustard, and a sweet touch of maple syrup.

3. Elevate the dressing with a sprinkle of 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, and a dash of salt and pepper, catering to the plant-based palate with a balance of flavors.

4. Drizzle the vibrant dressing over your bed of vegetables. With a gentle toss, coat the cabbage, carrots, and onion until they are beautifully unified in flavor, creating a visually stunning vegan dip.

5. Allow the coleslaw to chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour. This crucial step lets the ingredients marry and intensify, resulting in a coleslaw that's both refreshing and rich in taste.

6. Just before serving, garnish with fresh dill to introduce an aromatic freshness, completing this lacto-vegetarian favorite with a flourish.


Additional Tips:

For added crunch, throw in some toasted slivered almonds or sunflower seeds.

If you prefer a little heat, add a dash of cayenne pepper to the dressing.
