Creamy Homemade Coleslaw (vegan)

This recipe for Creamy, crunchy, tangy coleslaw you’d never guess it’s dairy free! It’s easy to make and a perfect side dish for a barbecue; we had one yesterday as the weather was nice & luckily we have a garden.

Yes vegan’s can enjoy a bbq – there are a good range of Vegan burgers & sausages – homemade Chips & Coleslaw was the perfect accompaniment.

Vegan mayonaise is a game changer! It tastes as good as a dairy mayonnaise. You can purchase in most major supermarkets. We only use vegan mayo now.


• White and/ or red cabbage. 1/2 of each

• 4x Carrots – adds more color and crunch.

• 1x Onion (you can also use spring onion)

• 1 x Cup Vegan Mayonnaise

• Salt & pepper

• You can add Parsley, garlic, mustard or lemon if you like but I kept it simple.


  1. Wash & drain the vegetables.
  2. Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage.
  3. Thinly shred the cabbage you can do this by hand with a sharp knife or use a food processor.
  4. Dice the onion
  5. Shred the carrots with a grater.
  6. Drain the carrots well as otherwise they make the dressing quite watery.
  7. Assemble the coleslaw: Add the cabbage carrots & onion to a large mixing bowl, pour the dressing on top and mix together. Finish with salt and pepper to taste.
