All-Green Spring Slaw

All Green Spring Slaw by Bryant Terry from Afro-Vegan

This dish is my modern take on classic coleslaw. The delicate flavor of the green peas and sugar snap peas make this an exceptional dish, and the crunch from the celery and pumpkin seeds is extremely satisfying. The tangy dressing is top-notch too, so reserve any extra to use on another salad.

Napa Sriracha Slaw

Napa sriracha slaw from Heather Poire

I absolutely love a good slaw alongside vegan brats & beans, tempeh sliders are generously mounded with the stuff and lately I can’t get enough of this slaw stuffed inside my tacos. If you are looking for a super creamy slaw adjust the vegan mayo according to your taste. This recipe makes a boatload — perfect for a BBQ, picnic or leftovers for a sandwich or taco topper!

Red Cabbage, Carrot, and Apricot Salad

Red Cabbage, Carrot, and Apricot Salad

Here’s a nice change of pace from “white” coleslaw —  a combination of red cabbage and carrot, sweetened with dried apricots. It adds a refreshing note to spicy meals and adds vibrant color to the plate. You can use whichever fresh herbs you like, or a combination, but I think this is particularly good with cilantro.

It goes well with most any kind of meal, lending a nice contrast to spicy and hearty dishes. Photos by Rachael Braun. more→
