Super crunchy and sweet Poppyseed Coleslaw, perfect for summer barbecues!
This unique version of coleslaw is much healthier than it’s fattening mayo (distant) cousin. It’s vegan, gluten free, and the golden raisins give it an extra-added sweetness. And it’s also really pretty and full of color.
How to make this Poppyseed Coleslaw:
To start, prepare and chop your veggies. Then, add the cabbage, carrots, green onions, golden raisins, and mint to an extra large bowl. Stir to combine.
Then in a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and stir with a whisk to combine. When ready to serve, pour dressing over salad and stir to combine.
This recipe for Poppyseed Coleslaw makes about 6 cups, or 12 (1/2 cup) servings.
This coleslaw salad is excellent for potlucks and will stay fresh for up to 2 days in the fridge.
If you’re making in advance, I would recommend keeping the sauce separate from the veggies. Mix together before serving. And don’t forget to check out the nutritional value below. It’s deliciously guilt free!
