No May Coleslaw

No Mayo Crunchy Coleslaw

I was making coleslaw and didn’t have any mayonnaise or avocado oil to make my own.  So I came up with this dressing for my coleslaw.  The chili flakes are optional but I thoroughly recommend adding a few.


  • 1/2 red cabbage, finely sliced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 bunch mint, chopped
  • 1 bunch coriander, chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes


  1. Prepare and chop all your salad ingredients and add to a big bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Mix your dressing ingredients in a jug or glass jar.
  4. Pour dressing over salad and serve along your favourite protein.

NOTE: Put aside in a separate container any salad you won’t eat tonight before dressing.  You can eat this for lunch tomorrow.
