Ingredients for Vegan Coleslaw

  • Store-bought slaw mix – traditionally, coleslaw is cabbage based, but I decided to use a broccoli based slaw mixture. Use whatever you enjoy most!
  • Vegan mayonaise – my favorite vegan mayo is from Follow Your Heart. It tastes just like the real thing and is #PickyAssHusbandApproved! 😉
  • apple cider vinegar – the vinegar in this recipe adds to the overall flavor and provides that tang you know and love. Don’t worry, it’s not overpowering!
  • dijon mustard – if you’re in a pinch, you could also substitute with plain mustard.
  • organic cane sugar
  • celery seed
