Top Tips for Making Vegan Coleslaw

  1. Good Mayo!

    A good quality vegan mayonnaise makes a difference. I really love Thrive Market’s brand of vegan mayo. If you can’t get it, I recommend looking for one with similar ingredients!

  2. Vegan Keto or Low Carb Coleslaw

    Even with the addition of a tiny bit of coconut sugar, this vegan coleslaw recipe is still considered keto or low-carb, but it will still be equally delicious if you omit the sugar altogether, or make it sugar-free with the addition of a sugar-free sweetener such as this one.

Common Recipe Questions

  1. How long does this vegan coleslaw keep?

    This coleslaw can be enjoyed straight away or refrigerated until ready to serve. I do find it to grow even creamier after some time in the refrigerator. To store, place the coleslaw in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to one week.
