Creamy Vegan Coleslaw



  • 1 medium purple or green cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 cups carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 cup raisins, unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • 3/4 cup cashews, unsalted and raw
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup + 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 medium garlic clove
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Shred salad and carrots and toss in a large bowl. Add the raisins, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper and toss to combine. Set aside.
  2. Blend all dressing ingredients in a blender. Adjust ingredients to taste if necessary. If you prefer a more sweet dressing, add a small spoon of maple syrup. If it needs more acidity, add a small spoon of apple cider vinegar or mustard.
