Veg coleslaw sandwich recipe made with cashew cream is the best coleslaw sandwich you will ever taste. It’s a healthier version of the coleslaw sandwich which replaces the widely used mayo with freshly made cashew cream.
Coleslaw is traditionally a Dutch Salad made with shredded cabbage in a vinegar based dressing. It is now widely made with mayonnaise as one of it’s main ingredients. Coleslaw sandwich is also called as Mayo Sandwich for the same reason.
We love this simple coleslaw sandwich. It’s creamy, satisfying, has a lovely crunch from all the vegetables. My daughter loves this sandwich and I love it because it is a great way to add vegetables in her food. She happily eats this sandwich because of it’s creamy, slightly tangy and slightly sweet taste.
The crunch in the coleslaw sandwich is from shredded vegetables like cabbage, carrots, peppers, onion, etc. Creaminess comes from Mayo traditionally but I have made a fresh cashew cream which is equally creamy and of course a healthier alternative to Mayo which is nothing but oil and egg yolk. Addition of cashew cream makes this a completely Vegan Coleslaw Sandwich.
Coleslaw sandwich is great for evening snacks, mid hunger pangs, toddler food, as party snacks and also to pack in kids lunch box. You may also want to have a look at Spinach Corn Sandwich, Beetroot Curd Sandwich and our most popular Sandwich 4 Ways.
