Well, this creamy homemade coleslaw dressing recipe is perfect and just requires 7 simple ingredients and takes only a few minutes to prepare. It’s prepared with all-natural, high-quality ingredients. You know exactly what’s in your coleslaw dressing when you create it yourself.

Coleslaw Salad


You can use a store-bought bag of coleslaw mix or make your own, but fresh is always preferable. The from-scratch coleslaw dressing is the finest part of my homemade Coleslaw Recipe! When you make this creamy dressing at home, you can customize the flavors to your liking, making it a little tangier or sweetener to suit your tastes. Healthy coleslaw is a crowd-pleasing addition to any summer party, picnic, or barbeque party.


Vegan Globetrotter Tips

  • Try combining cabbage and kale coleslaw with the dressing instead of plain cabbage.
  • If you want your coleslaw to be soft but crunchy, salt your cabbage first. Transfer shredded cabbage to a colander with a few teaspoons of kosher salt. Allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes. Use any extra moisture in your salad by pressing it out.
  • To add garlic flavor to the dressing, coarsely cut and mash one garlic clove. Alternatively, use around ½ teaspoon garlic powder.
  • Instead of cabbage, try the dressing with broccoli slaw.


Storing Tips

This dressing can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week in an airtight container. Chill the dressing before tossing it with the coleslaw mix for the best results. Coleslaw tastes best the day it’s made with the dressing. If you wish to make the coleslaw ahead of time, keep the dressing and coleslaw mix separate in the refrigerator. Combine the ingredients no more than a couple of hours before serving the coleslaw.
