How long does Creamy Vegan Coleslaw Dressing last in the fridge?
Up to 1 week in an airtight container. It’s best to make the vegan coleslaw dressing in small batches so that you can enjoy it at its freshest and fullest flavor. If stored properly, it can last up to one week in the fridge, allowing you to enjoy it for several meals or as a dip for your veggies. Just make sure to give it a good shake or stir before using it to bring back the consistency.
What goes into a classic coleslaw dressing?
A traditional coleslaw dressing typically includes a combination of vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, salt, pepper, and mayonnaise. In this vegan version, we’ve replaced the mayo with a plant-based alternative and added a touch of sweetness using maple syrup instead of sugar. To give it an extra zing, we’ve also included the option of adding a bit of dijon mustard. The result is a tangy and creamy dressing that’s perfect for all your coleslaw needs.
When should you dress coleslaw?
It’s best to dress coleslaw no more than 20 minutes before serving to prevent it from becoming soggy. Add the dressing in small increments, mix well, and taste it to ensure you haven’t overdressed it. If you’re serving guests, it’s always a good idea to have the salad lightly dressed and have extra Creamy Vegan Coleslaw Dressing on the side for those who prefer more. By following these tips, you can enjoy a crisp and delicious coleslaw salad every time! 😋
What are the best vegetables to use in coleslaw?
Traditional coleslaw is made with shredded cabbage and carrots, but you can also add in other vegetables like bell peppers, celery, or red onions for added flavor and texture. For a vegan coleslaw, you can also add in some sliced avocado or a sprinkle of hemp seeds for added protein and healthy fats. The possibilities are endless and you can get creative with your vegetable choices, so feel free to experiment with different combinations of veggies.
