Mayo-Free Coleslaw Vegan Recipe

Mayo-Free Coleslaw

Growing up, I hated coleslaw. It looked so… weird!! And it smelled awful.

LOL silly me. Coleslaw is incredible. I don’t even know when or why I started to like it, but it is one of my favorite summer side dishes. While nothing compares to come good ‘ol vegan mayo, I was playing around with flavor and landed on this mayo-free recipe. Can you guess what my secret ingredient is?

TAHINI, OBVIOUSLY. So tangy!! It’s so delicious. You won’t even miss the mayo. I made this for my family a while back and it was a hit. My [vegan] mom especially loved it. So if you need a quick and easy dish to bring to a cookout coming up, I highly suggest this one.


Serves: 8-10 people (or more)

You will need:

  • 1 head cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tbs dijon mustard
  • Dash of salt, pepper, and celery salt (to taste)
  • Sesame seeds, to garnish

To make:

It’s simple, really. Dump all ingredients into a large bowl and mix away until well combined. Taste test as you go to adjust seasonings, etc.

I guarantee that even the non-vegans will enjoy this side dish. You don’t even have to tell them it is sans mayo. Let them figure that out on their own – LOL. xx bianca
