Try making this refreshing creamy crunchy coleslaw at home today!

Sandra always likes to make her own dressings because it’s quick, easy, and they just taste better. She uses plain Silk brand soy yogurt and Follow Your Heart veganaise to make the veganized classic coleslaw dressing in less than a minute! Then, Sandra adds the shredded green and purple cabbage, along with shredded carrots into her mixing bowl. She adds the crunchiest chopped grapes she can find. If you don’t have grapes, she says you can add chopped granny smith apples instead to get that fruity crunch as well! Sandra makes the salad “pop” with the flavor and creaminess of the Violife feta cheese.  For even more crunch and flavor, she tops the slaw with roasted almonds. Sandra explains that this slaw can be used as a side or you can get creative and top a veggie dog or veggie burger with it. Talk about transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary! Sandra says you can make the coleslaw a main course by adding a few slices of tempeh or grilled tofu. Make your own refreshing summer coleslaw at home with Sandra’s recipe below!
