Healthy Coastal Coleslaw

Healthy Coastal Coleslaw

I’ll never forget the first time my sweet friend made this dish for my family. Well, actually I don’t remember all the details. I’m pretty sure I was knee deep in babies and barely awake but it made quite an impression and became a staple!

Sweet, citrus-y, crisp & salty.

Just last week we packed it for a beach day! It was so cool and satisfying.

Yes. My kids eat it and LOVE it.

The original recipe will always be a treasure for me because of who introduced me to it but I had to make some heal-thy adjustments. Same amazing flavor. More veggies. Less junk.

Ingredients for Coastal Coleslaw:

  • 1 head of cabbage (thinly shredded)
  • 4 stalks of celery (thinly sliced)
  • 1 bunch of cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 green onions (sliced)
  • 1 c. almonds (chopped)
  • 5 mandarin oranges (peeled and segmented)

Shred, slice, peel & chop. Set aside while you make the sauce.


  • 3/4 c. Coconut Aminos
  • 1/4 c. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 TB Honey
  • 1 TB Avocado or Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. TJ’s Green Goddess Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • A pinch of Red Pepper Flakes

Simply stir together!

Finally, toss the coleslaw with sauce just before serving.

You really can’t mess this up. Throw it together for a potluck. Serve it as a side. Put it in a wrap. It’s definitely a must try!
