Vegan cabbage slaw with chicory

Wednesday August 19, 2020 - by

Eating fresh salads is always a good idea on hot summer days, because you don’t have to deal with hot pans which makes your home even hotter. A cold dish is the best you can serve on such days. This cabbage slaw with apple and chicory is completely vegan, super healthy and crunchy. My recipe is comparable with coleslaw, but with a few extra tasty ingredients. Coleslaw is a cold vegetable salad with white cabbage and a mayo/yogurt dressing. Usually served as a side dish and is often seen at barbecues. Earlier I made a chicory salad with celery and iceberg lettuce without cabbage, Go to this recipe.

Low carb salad

Since we eat a few days in the week lowcarb, this dish is perfect as a main course. However, I add some walnuts and pieces of ‘feta’ to make it more complete. If you don’t want to eat plant-based cheese, you can replace it for avocado. My vegan cabbage slaw is packed with vegetables like for example carrot, beetroot and fennel. What we really like about this salad is that the ingredients makes it all so crispy. In addition, I prepared a simple sauce with yogurt, mayonaise, mustard, white wine vinegar and agave syrup. It combines perfectly with the salad.
