Oil-Free Vegan Coleslaw

Coleslaw is one of my summertime favorite sides. It seems to go with just about anything coming off the grill. When we switched to plant-based and oil-free, I was bummed that the only non-dairy coleslaw dressing I could find was loaded with oil. Recently, I came across an oil-free dressing recipe and made some adjustments to improve it. Hint: This also works as a refreshing salad dressing!

I haven’t tried this without the mustard yet, but for those who prefer to skip it, I’m going to guess it’ll be just as good without. If you do try it, let me know how it was in the comments.

Also, if your local store carries it, I’d recommend starting with “coleslaw mix” — that’s just the veggies precut and ready for the dressing. You’ll save yourself a lot of time, and maybe even a few fingers.
