Dairy -Free
                          I made coleslaw as a side dish on  Labor Day !
                                                     Enjoy the recipe ! 


·        1/2 head of green or red cabbage
·       1 -1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
·       1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
·       1/4 cup Earth Balance mayonnaise(Dairy/Soy-free)
·       1/4 cup almond milk Greek style yogurt
·       1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
·       1 teaspoon Truvia(stevia)
·       1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
·       1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
·       2 medium carrots, peeled and grated


1.     Slice cabbage and discard the core. Only using one half of the cabbage,  cut into thinly slices about  1/8-inch-wide strips.
2.    Place cabbage in a large colander set over a large bowl or plate, sprinkle with kosher salt, and toss to coat. Place a heavy bowl on top of the cabbage, then place a heavy can or container in the bowl to weigh it down. Let sit until cabbage has released about 1/3 cup of moisture, at least 1 hour.



          The water left over from the cabbage after 1 hour ....

3.  Place the apple cider vinegar in a small bowl ....

 along with the mayonnaise,

        I'm using Earth Balance (Dairy/Soy-free)

 the Almond milk yogurt...

                                                                 then ....

                                                      stir to combine.

 Add the Truvia, celery seeds ,salt & pepper ...

            Truvia                                                                            Celery seeds


      Pepper & Salt 

stir to combine.


Set aside  until cabbage is ready.

4.   Place the cabbage in a salad spinner to to release any excess liquid...

5.     Place cabbage in a large bowl , 
Add grated carrots along with the dressing.
   (Quick step:I bought carrots that were already grated.)


Toss to combine. 
Season with additional salt and pepper as needed.

Refrigerated in a tightly 
sealed container 
for about a hour before serving.

I forgot to add the Dijon mustard....
You would normally add this in Step 3 ....
I am mixing it in now...
Back in the refrigerator it goes ...
(You'll never know the difference)

Ready to serve !!!
