Dairy Free Coleslaw
As I was preparing this recipe I was thinking of the best title for it. At first I was going to call it a cabbage salad. Then ‘coleslaw’ popped into my head. I looked up the word ‘coleslaw’ and it turns out that ‘coleslaw’ is defined as a salad made with raw cabbage (Webster Dictionary).
So my salad was a coleslaw! Only with a twist.
I replaced the traditional mayonnaise with a quick citrussy dressing, which makes the recipe not only lighter but also suitable for vegans.
My herb of choice for this coleslaw is fresh dill as it complements raw cabbage extremely well. If you like this herb you may also like my Potato Salad with Mustard Dill Dressing.
Dairy Free Coleslaw with Pomegranate
The pomegranate seeds add sweetness and crunch plus are very nutritious. They are essential in this healthy vegan coleslaw recipe! Play around with the ingredients if you like and use more pomegranate to make it sweeter or more lime juice perhaps to make it zestier. Make this coleslaw your own and enjoy it!
Pomegranate seeds make a fantastic addition to all sorts of dishes, salads in particular. I’ve used them in this beet salsa recipe, as well as my easy cauliflower rice tabbouleh. You might also like this cauliflower pomegranate salad.
This vegan coleslaw recipe is super easy to put together! Simply grate some cabbage, combine with the dill, drizzle with a little lemon juice and oil, season to taste and stir. Decorate with the pomegranate jewels and tuck in!
