Vegan Brussels Sprout Slaw with Cranberries, Apples and Walnuts

This vegan Brussels sprout slaw recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving, the holidays, or as a delicious winter salad. It’s easy. You blend the walnut dressing, chop some ingredients, and mix it all up in a large bowl. Simple!

The real showstopper here is the creamy vegan walnut dressing. It’s oil free, gluten free and has a tasty umami flavor that pairs well with the tangy cranberries, sweet apples and rich walnuts.

Two things…

  • ・Because the dressing uses raw walnuts, you’ll need to use a high speed blender, like a Vitamix or Ninja.
  • ・If you wish to make this completely oil free, make sure to select dried cranberries without oil. Sometimes, it’s a sneaky ingredient in there, but there are dried cranberries without it.

I positively love the contrasting textures from the chewy cranberries to the crisp apples to the crunchy nuts and the shredded Brussels sprouts. I hope you enjoy it too!
