I love coleslaw because of its superfood health benefits. And what I enjoy most about coleslaw recipes is the varieties of coleslaw varieties for different salad recipes. BBQ coleslaw, for instance, tastes slightly smoky yet sweet and creamy. My BBQ coleslaw recipe, for example, is perfect as a burger topping, a side salad, or an entree salad with your favorite vegan protein.
Today, however, I plan to serve BBQ coleslaw as a side dish for our tofu burgers. But I'm sure my kids will pile it on top of their burgers as well.
For this coleslaw, I chose a kale cabbage mix. Then, I added red bell peppers, shredded carrots, and red onions. Because I included kale, I dressed the BBQ coleslaw earlier the day, softening the kale and cabbage.
WHAT IS IN THE BBQ COLESLAW DRESSING?
First, you need to use your favorite vegan mayo. Since I don't eat oil or store-bought mayo, I make my own Vegan Cashew Mayo. The rest of the ingredients, more than likely, are in your pantry and refrigerator.
Then, whisk the 4 ingredients together and pour over the coleslaw vegetables. As I said before, dressing the BBQ coleslaw in advance actually helps enhance the flavors and soften the kale.
SERVINGS BBQ COLESLAW RECIPE
Even though tonight I plan to serve BBQ coleslaw as a side dish, this recipe is fabulous for other sandwiches. For instance, I love it on top of a tofu burger. Or, serve BBQ coleslaw with your favorite BBQ dishes.
