Tangy Coleslaw

Tangy coldslaw with yellow pepper

Here’s a great coleslaw, perfect for picnics, vegan barbecues, or to dress up everyday meals. It gets an extra kick from pickles, fresh dill, and horseradish.

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 4 cups firmly packed, shredded white cabbage,
    or 2 cups each red and white cabbage
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 1 medium yellow or red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup finely diced half sour pickle
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill, or more, to taste


  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish, or to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine the salad ingredients in a serving bowl and toss together.

Combine the dressing ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk together. Pout over the slaw and stir together thoroughly.

Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to blend. Taste to adjust any of the flavors, or add a bit more vegan mayo if you like a creamier slaw.
