  • 7 oz or 200 g purple cabbage shredded
  • 3.5 oz or 100 g shredded carrots
  • 2/3 cup or 1 batch vegan cashew mayo
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl combine shredded cabbage, carrots, parsley and cashew mayo. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.


Cook’s Tips

  • To soften the cabbage and to get the excess moisture out of it, toss it with a bit of salt and let it sit in a colander for about an hour before squeezing out any excess moisture. Alternatively, just scrunch it with your hands after you add salt until juices start to come out.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge separately from the dressing for up to 3 days. If the cabbage releases liquid, drain it before putting in the salad.
  • Pair this salad with tacos, sloppy joes, chili, corn on the cob, sandwiches (best vegan pulled jackfruit sandwich), baked potatoes, vegan pulled pork or as a filling in wraps. Enjoy it as an easy and delicious side dish perfect for potlucks and summer BBQ.
