Easy No-Mayo Coleslaw

That’s right, creamy mayo-free coleslaw is possible.

Plus, it’s significantly healthier than its traditional counterpart, it only takes about 5 minutes to make and it’s SUPER delicious. We love to take this as a side to summer picnics or serve it on top of burgers and pulled pork. Its sweet, tangy flavor will have you coming back for seconds, maybe even thirds!

How to keep your coleslaw chilled outside

If you’re serving this coleslaw at a summer picnic or party, you may be wondering how you can keep it cold. Simply add ice cubes to a larger bowl than the one you’re serving your coleslaw in and set your serving bowl on the bed of ice.

Some ways to “reinvent” your leftovers:

  • On top of burgers or pulled pork
  • On top of a salad
  • In a wrap or quesadilla

Every cook needs a recipe or two that never fails. This easy no-mayo coleslaw is a healthier version of its traditional counterpart and only takes 5 minutes to make. What a great topping or side for any occasion.




  1. In a large bowl, combine and mix all ingredients except jalapeño, onion and cabbage until smooth and creamy. Taste and season with extra salt and pepper, if needed.
  2. Add coleslaw mix, onion and minced jalapeño to bowl. Toss until evenly combined.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. This will give a nice crunch to the salad. If you prepare it the day before, the slaw will release moisture and become softer, but this imparts delicious flavor. So, you decide which texture and flavor you like best!


We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.

Always check for FfL-friendly ingredients.
