If finally feels like fall here in Arizona. Finally! I absolutely LOVE coleslaw. This Vegan Coleslaw is my most popular recipe on The Veg Life! I also did another version here using carrots and this one called Confetti Coleslaw. But this Brussels Sprout Slaw seemed appropriate for the season at hand. Plus, I adore Brussels Sprouts. Today, I am actually serving it as a salad. Yum!
This recipe is quick and easy and the perfect side for your next dinner. Shredded sprouts are tossed with a dressing made up of vegan mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, agave syrup, oil, champagne vinegar and orange zest. The slaw is then topped with toasted pecans and dried cranberries. Season with a sprinkling of salt and pepper and you are done! Festive, right?
The best part about this slaw, is that you can make it a few hours in advance allowing you more time with your family. And that’s really what it’s all about. Quick, yet delicious meals that bring families together to gather around the table. If you make this recipe for Brussels Sprout Salad, leave me a comment below and let me know what you think! 🙂
