I’m going to post here again because this is just so good. Healthy with no salt. Delicious and so quick. I love this!

Haven't tried this yet, but it looks great. Wondering what piece of equipment you are using to make the veggies look like fine egg noodles?

PUL Team - April 29, 2024, 7:48 a.m.

Hey Lori, we used a mandoline to shred up the veggies, though a box shredder should also work to achieve a similar texture 😊

So good! This is now my go to for all future coleslaws!

Soooo good! This is my new favourite wintry salad recipe😍😍loved it as a side dish

Priscila Pereira - Sept. 27, 2023, 2:35 a.m.

I just made this salad and I’m amazed. Wanted to use some carrots I had in the fridge for a quick to make dinner and came across this deliciousness. I substitute the agave for maple, lime for lemon, and used red cabbage because that what I had. So tasty!!!!

PUL Team - Sept. 27, 2023, 3:16 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Priscila - we're so happy that the slaw was enjoyed with the modifications ✨

Martunia - Sept. 25, 2023, 2:43 p.m.

I made this twice now. Amazing as a side dish or in burgers. The crunch is everything!

Laura - July 18, 2023, 3:32 p.m.

SO DELICIOUS! I made this last evening with some leftover cabbage that I had in the fridge. I had to sub a little lemon juice because I ran out of lime but it was still very tasty and super refreshing on a hot summer night. I also cubed up some tofu to top it with, and subbed cashews because that's what I had. And now I can't wait to eat lunch today!

My husband and I love watching your videos on YouTube - he is currently reviewing his diet due to some health issues and you've provided a TON of inspiration and great information. Last night he checked me about the type of rice I was cooking (Are you making brown??) and asked what the health benefits of chia seeds are. Thanks for everything!!! :)

PUL Team - July 22, 2023, 2:26 a.m.

Awe we're so thrilled our videos are being enjoyed, Laura, and thanks for sharing your experience with the recipe! Lots of love to you and your husband 💛

I am absolutely addicted to this salad right now. Eating it at least twice a week. Absolutly love the dressing and swapt out the daikon for red cabbage, making it even more colorful.

Thank you so much for your amating work.

Mmm sounds lovely, Janine! Sending lots of love to the Austrian Alps 🤗

Simple and tasty. Made with black tahini. Didn't have radish. Added salt and subbed Maple for Agave. This is one of the few recipes I saved.

PUL Team - June 17, 2022, 6:38 a.m.

Ooo thanks for sharing the modifications, Daniel, we appreciate it so much!

Gesa - Jan. 10, 2022, 7:31 p.m.

It is January and here in Switzerland the 3 main ingredients carrots, cabbage and daikon raddish are all available from local producers also at this time of the year. That makes this coleslaw a very nice dish to prepare these weeks/months. I am glad I found this recipe and I really like it very much! I agree with another comment that salt and dill are a nice addition ;-) Thank you for publishing this recipe!

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 3:33 a.m.

Oh, Gesa, we're so happy to hear! Thanks a bunch for taking the time to share 🤗

Looks so delicious!! You've inspired me to eat more vegetarian and plant based! Thank you for your inspiration!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 5:07 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Kiki! Thank you for being here and allowing PUL to be part of your plant-based journey 🥰

I’m obsessed with creamy salads and sauces, so I was excited to try this coleslaw as a side dish. I really enjoyed it: it’s fresh and the vegetables remain crisp with the citrus and vinegar. I took honey instead of maple syrup, as the former is commonly used for cooking in Sweden. I noticed that there isn’t any salt in the dressing, so I added sea salt to balance the sweetness, acidity, and fat👌🏻. Dried dill and chives provide a nice top flavour!
I suppose that I should revise my idea of how a coleslaw should be (I’m not a strict old-definition vegetarian🤭), but I wouldn’t call this salad a coleslaw. It’s to light and mild for that. Don’t be discouraged! I’ll definitely make this salad again, as it’s easy to prepare👏🏼, versatile, and delicious. When I’ll have a strong desire for coleslaw, I’ll stay however with my mayonnaise-base ditto

PUL Team - June 12, 2021, 8:17 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Louise, and love that you added salt to help balance it out! The recipe is definitely lighter than usual coleslaw recipes. Perhaps it may be fun to experiment with adding mayonnaise to this one 🧐

Nina - March 22, 2021, 9:22 a.m.

This one tasted so much better than any other coleslaw I've ever eaten! Can't recommend this highly enough!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 1:59 a.m.

Aww what an incredible review, Nina! We're so happy to hear 🥰
