This Healthy vegan coleslaw recipe works wonders for meal prep! I love that the veggies hold their texture throughout the week-even with the dressing mixed in. This recipe is truly a grab and go for the busy weekday rush!
The green and purple cabbage add important cruciferous vegetable nutrition, and colour, while the edamame packs a powerful protein punch!
Mix up the textures and flavour by adding in some grated carrot and spiralized zucchini!
The dressing is a nod to the classic! The creamy texture of a vegan mayo is infused with cider vinegar, date sugar, dill and fresh cracked pepper to add a little zing!
Why Make My Vegan Coleslaw with Edamame and Dill?
This salad ticks all the boxes.
- Easy to prepare, and keeps on giving throughout the busy work week. It’s a one and done kind of dish!
- Packed with nutrition-from the fiber, to the micro-nutrients, to the protein Macros!
- Tastes as sinful as a traditional creamy coleslaw but with out the guilt and all of the benefit!
- Beautiful to look at (which deserves it’s own spot on this list! We eat with our eyes as they say!)

Healthy Vegan Coleslaw Salad – With Edamame and Dill
This healthy coleslaw is a powerhouse of nutrition! The veggies hold their form throughout the week so it’s easy to make ahead to grab and go!
- 3 cups shredded green cabbage
- 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
- 1 cup grated carrot
- 1 cup spiralized zucchini
- 1 cup thawed edamame, shelled
- 1/2 cup fresh dill or 1/4 cup dried
- 1 cup vegan mayonnaise I use Hellman’s Brand
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup date sugar or sub granulated
- 1 tsp salt
- fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Shred all of your cabbage into a large mixing bowl
Grate your carrot and pat dry with a kitchen towel to remove excess moisture. This is an important step so your cabbage does not become discolored.
Spiralize your zucchini and cut 2 inch pieces. Pat dry with a kitchen towel.
Add your carrots and zucchini to the cabbage. Toss to combine.
Measure out your frozen edamame into a strainer. Run it under hot water until thawed. Alternatively, you can thaw it the night before in the fridge. Add this to your veggie mix, and toss to combine.
In a separate mixing bowl, add your vegan mayonnaise, cider vinegar, date sugar, salt and fresh cracked pepper. Mix to a smooth consistency.
Chop your fresh dill (or measure out the dried) and add this to your dressing. Stir to combine.
Pour your dressing over your vegetable mixture and toss to combine.
Portion out 5 servings to be used throughout the week and place in the fridge.
Eat the rest now-you deserve it!!
If you are really running short on time, go ahead and pick up a ready to make coleslaw mix! Just measure out about 5 cups of the mix and add in your spiralized zucchini and thawed edamame. Could it get any easier?

This looks wonderful!! I love dill flavour in almost everything so I’m sure I’d be totally on board with this recipe. I think I just may have to try it for dinner tonight!
Oh me too girl!! Dill junky over here!!
Mmm this looks delicious! Though I am not a big fan of dill so I think I’ll skip that part when making it. Thanks for sharing this.
Yes you would not enjoy it here then! I bet some parsley would be a beautiful substitute though!
Loved it! Lookes easy to make and the photos are sooo good.

Great recipe here. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tips here.

I love cole slaw, but never thought about adding zucchini or edamame. Can’t wait to try this!
Thanks Tracy! I hope you love it!
It looks so delicious although it is all veges. 😉 It is also easy to prepare which is also a plus and anything with coleslaw I would grab and try it. Great video you have made there, I even swallowed while watching it.
Lol!!! I promise it doesn’t taste vegan:) I’m glad you liked the recipe and hopefully it gave you some inspiration for your next salad!
Looks like a tasty and simple recipe, am going to try. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Pon!
amazing recipe!! just the pictures make you jump !!! thanks i´ll try it this weekend !!
Thank you Sou! I think you will like it a lot:)
This looks delicious! Love all that healthy coloring.
fun for the eyes for sure!!
This sounds absolutely delicious and has to be extremely healthy compared to “regular mayo” ridden cole slaw. PLus edamame so how can you go wrong! I”ll be trying this vegan cole slaw for sure!
Thanks Scott!! The vegan mayo still has quite a bit of fat from the oil but it doesn’t contain cholesterol so that’s a plus:)
I am not a vegan but love all the vegan options that are now being available even in our country. This recipe looks great & would ask my wife to give it a try.Thanks for sharing.
I must admit that when I think of vegan recipes, cole slaw is not at the top of that list. This recipe sounds wonderful. Usually I cheat and buy the pre-packaged stuff and then make the dressing. My husband hates cole slaw, so it’s just me eating it.
That works!! And that way you could just half the ingredients and it keeps really well in the fridge. The only real vegan element is the mayo so you could easily use what you have on hand:)
