Creamy, Spicy, Vegan Zucchini Slaw

Are you looking for dine fresh zucchini recipes? Here is a lip-smacking creamy, spicy zucchini slaw that the whole family will enjoy anytime every day! Yes, every day! It’s that delicious. Did I say that this is vegan too? So, great to make this salad for vegan guests.

This slaw is very simple to make. I like simple and healthy recipes. Simple ones are always repeated often than elaborate recipes. This tasty slaw takes just a few minutes to make. Shred the veggies, add the dressing and it’s ready. Shredding zucchini or carrot doesn’t take too long. Hence, this slaw is always a winner.

Even people who don’t like zucchini, May start to love it, yes, not just like it but love it. I can guarantee that. My son approved my zucchini recipes, who is very picky thinking that there might be squash and zucchini in the food….. Many times I try to sneak more veggies just like every mom:-). Yes, he loved this slaw and was asking for more and said that I know this is zucchini but it is very good. There came the certification! Kid approved, adult approved! Thus us will lived in your home.

The dressing is very simple to make. I always use vegannise instead of Mayo. If you are ok with eggs, use mayo. Sambal paste gives the heat and if you don’t have that use siracha paste. With a little lime juice and salt, the creamy spicy dressing is ready. Just add that to the salad and enjoy.

This slaw can be used in sandwiches and wraps. This alone could be spread to make tea sandwiches and wraps too! We love them. Add this slaw on top of your burger to jazz it up. So many ways to use this delicious slaw. Zucchini is a versatile veggie and Zucchini Paneer Balls/Bonda and Vegan, Nut Free Zucchini Pesto/Zucchini Thogayal are yummy food that you will love. Try this Zucchini Nachos for an addictive and healthier snack that won’t disappoint you.
