Vegan Coleslaw with a Kick
It’s that time of year when people head outside to celebrate the warmer temperatures with picnics, BBQs, and other outdoor gatherings, and what better side dish to have a place at the table than a creamy coleslaw.
This Sriracha Coleslaw was inspired by my craving for a BBQ Lentil Sandwich, which I will be posting in the next week or so. I knew that I wanted a spicy coleslaw to top it. I already had a Jicama Slaw where I used sriracha sauce, and because of the ingredients in the BBQ lentils I decided a Sriracha Coleslaw was the route to go.
Vegan coleslaw with a kick, that’s my kind of coleslaw!
I actually don’t eat coleslaw very often. I prefer a loaded salad with my latest favorite dressing and ingredients. But when a craving for a BBQ Lentil Sandwich strikes me, I know a creamy coleslaw is in order. The spicy coleslaw provided the perfect contrasting crunch to the softer texture of the BBQ Lentils.This creamy Sriracha Coleslaw has quite the kick.

- Taste the coleslaw dressing as you make it. You may want more or less sugar and sriracha sauce.

- If you prefer to save money over time, julienne the cabbage and carrots yourself.
