A close up of homemade coleslaw

This fresh salad is essential to all our barbecues! It’s a healthy, delicious, filling side dish that pairs well with pretty much any grilled main dish. Made with a tasty creamy sunflower dressing that uses no oil, just a few wholesome ingredients popped in the NutraMilk. Enjoy!


For Cole Slaw

An overview of raw coleslaw ingredients
  • 400 g cabbage washed; mix of red and green is nice
  • 150 g carrots washed and trimmed
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 30 g chopped fresh parsley

For sunflower dressing

  • 1 cup (135 g) shelled, raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 banana shallot / eschallot peeled and roughly chopped; or half small onion
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp celery seeds optional
  • 1 clove garlic smashed and peeled
  • 2 tbsp. lemon or lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 -1 cup water
  • salt to taste


  • Place sunflower seeds and salt in the NutraMilk container.
  • Press Butter cycle, set for 14-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, sauté onion and garlic for a few minutes until translucent.
  • Once the sunflower seeds have reached a butter consistency, add the sautéed onions, garlic and rest of dressing ingredients and process until well combined and creamy.  Start by using ¼ cup water and gradually add more depending on how runny or creamy you prefer the dressing consistency.

  • Use a heavy knife or mandoline to shred the cabbage into fine slices; grate the carrots on the coarse side of a box grater, and slice chives. Pop the vegetables plus the chives and parsley into a large mixing bowl.
