Peanut & Ginger Collard Green Coleslaw

Finally! Back in the kitchen and eating something other than cookies. Yes! Yes! Yes! This salad is my favourite three things: flavourful, healthy & cheap. It’s also bright and colourful, which was just what I needed to mirror this unseasonably springlike on this beautiful March day.

Peanut & Ginger Collard Green Coleslaw

For the slaw

  • 4 cups broccoli, carrot & cabbage coleslaw mix
  • 2 cups collards, stems removed and sliced into shreds
  • 1 cup cooked edamame 

For the dressing

  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 heaping tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tsp ground chia (optional, helps to thicken)
  • 2 tbsp flax oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 inch or so of minced ginger (I always freeze my ginger and grate from frozen!)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 chopped scallions 


  1. Warm the almond milk in a small saucepan until just below boiling.
  2. Melt molasses and peanut butter into the almond milk and stir until combined. If usin, whisk in ground chia and cook an additional minute.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in oils and seasonings. Whisk in vinegars next, 1 tbsp at a time to prevent the almond milk from separating. (If it does, don’t worry! It will still taste delicious.)
  4. Toss together dressing and slaw mix in a large bowl and allow to marinate in the refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight.

Makes about 3-4 servings which – if you’re anything like me – will be polished off in one day. Come to think of it…I might need to go back for thirds right about now….

Am I alone on this one or do you also start to crave a little colour in your meals when spring weather hits? What about in your wardrobe? 😉
