Recipe: 3 Dairy Free Coleslaw Dressings

Coleslaw is one of my favorite side dishes so for variety sake, we had to come up with some dairy free coleslaw dressings. Cabbage is part of the cruciferous vegetable family and is excellent for colon health. If you’re a guy, colon health and specifically cruciferous vegetables play a big role in prostate health and increasing testosterone. We make our own coleslaw around our house, grating fresh red and yellow cabbage ourselves. I like to make different sorts of dairy free coleslaw dressings, some with a little kick.

I used to think that coleslaw dressings were always white and creamy because that’s how it was when my mom made it. It’s also how you’ll find the fast food variety of coleslaw, like KFC or otherwise. We like mustard and lime and spices such as cayenne, so they’re included in our dressings.

Recipe: Healthy Salad Dressings

Most commercial salad dressings are full of saturated fats, hydrogenated oils and preservatives. It is quick and easy to make up several batches of your own healthy salad dressings to keep handy. I even use a miniature bottle to keep some in my purse if I want to eat salad out and don’t like the choices for dressing the restaurant offers.

Save your old jam jars or small pickle jars and store your dressings in them. They are perfect to give the dressing a quick shake, then serve over favorite greens.
