Creamy Cashew Turmeric Slaw {dairy-free, vegan, paleo}


Growing up in our household, no Sunday lunch was complete without a side of coleslaw.

It was a tradition I somewhat hold to this day. While I may not have the same extraordinary Sunday lunches my mother would put on, I do maintain a salad habit.

My go-to salads are simple green salads and a coleslaw (aka ‘slaw’) of some notion.

Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time experimenting with slaw dressings.

Whether making mayonnaise from scratch or trying something exotic like coconut cream, I’ve been on a mission to craft the BEST slaw!

Finally, I decided to try a totally dairy-free slaw — which led to this Creamy Cashew-Turmeric Slaw!

It has a touch of turmeric for an added punch of color and nutrition. Because isn’t turmeric all the rage these days? I must say, I do rather love it. So much in fact, it’s become a staple in my pantry for when I want things to look as bright and yellow as the sun. (Learn more about the amazing benefits of turmeric!)

Whatever you do, steer well clear of the store-bought mayonnaises. They are loaded with highly processed vegetable oils (like soybean and canola oil) and additives that definitely shouldn’t be part of a healthy lifestyle.
