This 5-ingredient vegan coleslaw dressing recipe is dynamic. It’s rich, creamy and quite possibly makes the most delicious, dairy-free coleslaw dressing. If you’re looking to whip up a jar of quick and easy coleslaw dressing without mayo, this is the recipe for you. At my house, you will find us chowing down this recipe alongside my BBQ turkey meatballs and Crispy; gluten-free oven baked bbq chicken wings.
Do you want to know what makes this vegan coleslaw dressing better than all the rest? It’s dairy-free, made with ingredients you already have in your pantry, and it only takes 5 minutes. It may take a little longer if you decide to use fresh cabbage and carrots, but I used bagged classic coleslaw. Don’t judge me!
Coleslaw without mayo lasts a bit longer than your traditional dressing. It will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge if stored in a bowl with an airtight lid. After the fourth day, the coleslaw begins to lose its crispy texture but’s it’s still delicious.
CAN THIS RECIPE BE MADE IN ADVANCE?
Honestly, Making the vegan coleslaw dressing recipe ahead of time is a great idea. It allows the dressing to build flavor. If serving this for guests, I’d add the sauce to the cabbage and refrigerate about 1 hour before serving. This step will give your cabbage a bold and flavorful crunch without being soggy.
I love serving this coleslaw alongside anything with BBQ sauce or fried. I recently whipped up a batch vegan coleslaw dressing without mayo when I made BBQ turkey meatballs for Emory. We convinced her that the coleslaw is dinosaur food. She gobbles it up because she’s obviously a 2-year-old dinosaur!
