Sassy Slaw

Earth Angel Vegan’s Sassy Coleslaw is a hit!   I make this super fast dressing with sweet and hot pickles that you can find at any grocery store.  You could just use sweet pickles if you are not a spicy vegan!  This slaw goes great with veggie burgers, barbecue tofu, or on a bun as a slaw sammie!  Try this easy refreshing summer salad with all of your favorite summer meals!


1 14 oz bag of slaw mix (or shred your own)


Add to a high speed blender….

2/3 cup raw cashews

1 cup water

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon agave syrup (or maple)

1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend this mix until smooth and then add…

1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped sweet hot pickles,  2 tablespoons of the pickle juice and 1/4 teaspoon celery seed.  You could add other slaw mix ins like grated carrot, onion or red pepper if you want a heartier slaw!

This is your dressing… mix well with the slaw and refrigerate at least one hour for flavors to mesh!








Sunflower Seed Dressing

Earth Angel Vegan’s Sunflower Dressing is a snap to prepare.  This dressing is so tasty and can be used as a topping for baked potatoes, a spread for sandwiches or a dressing for anything from tossed salad to coleslaw or pasta salad.  The last time I made it I had left over dressing that I added mustard and agave to and now it is a family favorite “honey mustard”!


RECIPE:  You do need a high speed blender for smooth results!

1 Cup of raw sunflower seeds soaked in warm water for at least an hour

1 Cup filtered water

1 Tablespoon lemon juice or seasoned rice wine vinegar for a sweeter dressing

1 clove of garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Fresh chives minced for flavor and garnish (optional)

After soaking the seeds, rinse and drain them in a mesh sieve.  Add all the ingredients except the optional chives to the blender and blend until smooth.  If using for a topping for baked potatoes only use 3/4 cup water to make a thicker sauce.  After you get a smooth white dressing gently mix in the chopped chives… You could get fancy and use any fresh herb on hand… Jalapeños and cilantro just came to mind to put on tacos…. wow that was a light bulb moment!



1 Cup prepared sunflower seed dressing

2 heaping tablespoons yellow mustard

2 tablespoons agave syrup (or your sweetener of chioce)

Mix until combined.   Add more sweetener to taste.
