Extra dilly ranch slaw




15 min

Crunchy cabbage and broccoli get seriously craveable in this delectably dilled salad.

About this recipe

This slaw is so spectacularly fresh, flavorful and downright dilly you’ll never go back to plain old coleslaw (sorry, coleslaw.) Don’t get us wrong, we love mayo, but there’s something about the brightness and tanginess of ranch dressing that just works better for a refreshing slaw. That’s why we’re pouring on our lusciously creamy, dairy-free JUST Ranch. It delivers that classic ranch flavor you crave but is 100% plant-based and egg-free.

And hey, pickle lovers, listen up: this slaw gets its extra dilly deliciousness from zippy kosher dill pickles and chopped fresh dill. It’s all mixed up with a rainbow of veggies and green onions, making this vegan ranch slaw as crunchy and craveable as it is better for you. We love the sweet and peppery flavor of broccoli or kohlrabi in this recipe, but carrots will fit right in too. Just throw it all together in a big bowl and pour on as much JUST Ranch as your heart desires. The only way this slaw gets easier to make is if you can get your hands on pre-shredded vegetables.

Serve this slaw as a zesty side for all your backyard barbecues, picnics, and potlucks, as it complements burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and all things grilled.
