No-Oil Avocado Slaw | Quick & Easy Vegan Solutions

avocado slaw

“But you need mayo to make slaw?!” Not the case in our NO-OIL wonder, Avocado Slaw! We use all the magic of the glorious avocado to provide the creamy base that we’re looking for in this recipe, with a little tart edge added in with the rice wine vinegar. It’s a little salty, a little sweet, a little bit of whole food fat, and a lot of twang! You don’t need us to tell you that this will be a beautiful side for any of our BBQ recipes, whether you go for our Seitan Brisket or our BBQ Mushroom Steak (the no-oil vs oil version)! Serve up with BBQ Beans and you’ve got all bases covered.


  • ½ head white cabbage, chopped
  • 4 handfuls of kale, shaved
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, chopped
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 carrot, shaved
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2-3 TBSP agave
  • 2-3 TBSP rice wine vinegar (to taste)
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Squeeze avocado off the skin into a large bowl. Add 1 squeezed lemon and 1 squeezed lime (+ zester if you have a micro-plane). Add about agave, a few tbsp rice vinegar to taste, smoked paprika, celery salt, a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk.
  2. In a large bowl add ½ head chopped white cabbage, half the shaved kale, 1 shaved carrot, and add the dressing.
  3. Massage. Then add the remaining kale and purple cabbage.
  4. Mix thoroughly
  5. Add a lil purple cabbage for garnish.


Use blender to combine the dressing if you have one!
Wear an apron if whisking it yourself 😉
