Healthy Coleslaw Recipe

by | Dec 1, 2012 | Free Recipes

Nothing complements a hot dog or burger better than coleslaw. Coleslaw should be light and refreshing, but traditional coleslaw recipes are anything but, as they are laden with mayonnaise and/or sour cream.

In this recipe, I use a product called Vegenaise, which is now available at most grocery stores. It is a non-dairy, egg-free product and has the same texture and taste similar to Miracle Whip. Since it is a plant-based product, it does not contain cholesterol or saturated fat, which makes this a healthy coleslaw recipe. This recipe actually allows you to taste more than just the dressing…. the veggies! Now this coleslaw is definitely light, refreshing and healthy.


1/2 head green cabbage, finely sliced
1/2 head red cabbage, finely sliced
4 stalks of celery, finely sliced
1 carrot, grated
1/2 red onion, sliced in half moons
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced in half moons
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped


1 1/2 cup Vegenaise Dressing
1 1/2 Tbsp. Brown Rice or Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper


Combine the dressing in a separate bowl then add to the cabbage mixture. Using tongs, gently combine the cabbage mixture with the dressing. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
