Is this a vegan coleslaw recipe?
Yes! This Weight Watchers coleslaw recipe no mayo version is vegan. Because we aren’t using any dairy products in this recipe you don’t have to worry about enjoying it if you keep a vegan or vegetarian diet!
This simple vegan coleslaw is great for sharing and enjoying at parties, backyard BBQ’s, and more.
Even if you aren’t vegan or vegetarian there are some great perks to leaving out the dairy products in this coleslaw recipe. There’s no need to worry about the extra fat and calories that those products add and you can enjoy this recipe at all your parties without stressing about keeping dairy based products at appropriate temperatures.
How do I keep my coleslaw from getting watery?
Typically you can avoid this by making sure that all of your veggies have plenty of time to rest and that you aren’t using more liquid than your mayo or sour cream can withstand. This recipe doesn’t really have that problem because we aren’t using any mayo or sour cream.
Thanks to the lack of diary products in this recipe you won’t want to worry about the recipe looking overly watery. You can keep it mixed up to evenly distribute flavors while the recipe is chilling but there’s no real need to worry about that once it’s ready to be served!
I usually serve mine with a slotted spoon so that we’re just getting the tasty veggies and not scooping up much liquid to begin with!
What kind of dressing is on this coleslaw with no mayo?
Instead of using mayonnaise or whipped dressing for our coleslaw we will be using a more sweet and sour combination of olive oil, lemon juice, and seasonings. This recipe also uses vinegar to give the recipe a little bit of tangy zip!
The dressing also included stevia so you can add that to taste to balance out the sour flavors in the recipe if you aren’t a big fan of pickled type recipes.
How do I cut veggies for coleslaw recipes?
If you are looking for the best way to cut your veggies by hand for all your coleslaw recipes you can try cutting them super fine with a knife but that takes a lot of time. The best thing I’ve found to do is use a slicer so you can get them really thin and in consistent sizes.
You can also use a food processor that has the attachments for slicing and chopping so that everything comes out just the same size and very quickly too!
How many servings does this recipe make?
This recipe is calculated for 12 servings. You can make it more or less depending on your needs but that’s the general estimate for a recipe of this size. It’s also what I used to calculate the myWW+ program points on all three plans.
Be sure to recalculate for yourself if you make this recipe and do any changes or shift the portion sizes!
Each serving will be about 3/4 – 1 cup in size so you can use that for reference. This will vary based on the size of your cabbage and how thin and small you slice your veggies.
