  • 1/4 cup cashew butter
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar or lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos or tamari
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons red chili flakes or a splash or two of your favorite hot sauce


  • 1 small green cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 3 green scallion tops minced


  • In a bowl, add all sauce ingredients and stir until everything is creamy and well incorporated.
  • To a separate, large bowl, add slaw ingredients along with the sauce. Using tongs, toss thoroughly until the slaw is well coated in sauce.
  • Taste and add more salt and another tablespoon of vinegar, if desired.
  • Serve, or pop in the refrigerator. The slaw is usually even tastier the next day as the sauce breaks down the cabbage and the flavors meld!


Store leftovers in the fridge.
