This spiralized apple slaw is a healthy and innovative twist on traditional coleslaw. The dressing is mayo-free and instead has a base of tahini and apple cider vinegar. Vegan, gluten-free and paleo-friendly.

  • 1 large fuji apple, spiralized
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raisins

  • 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons water


  1. Prepare the dressing by adding all ingredients (tahini, apple cider vinegar, oil, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and water) into a small bowl and mixing until smooth.
  2. Toss the cabbage, apple, quinoa, spinach, sunflower seeds and raisins in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss to combine. Serve and enjoy.
