Crazy Cabbage Slaw Salad Recipe

This yummy, cold salad is my attempt to recreate a great meal I had while visiting my parents recently.
I have to say, this comes very close to the sweet, tangy, crunchy salad I enjoyed.
It lasts, too. You can refrigerate it for a few days and the cabbage stays crisp and becomes almost like a slaw.

Crazy Cabbage Slaw Salad

½-1 head of cabbage – shredded
A few handfuls of any assorted salad greens, chopped
1 can of corn – drained
About 10 pitted and chopped dates
1-1/2 cup of slivered raw almonds
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl

Creamy Citrus Dressing

About 1 ½ cup Veganaise
About 2-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
A splash of fresh orange juice OR ½ of an orange (squeezed)
A sprinkle of orange zest
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl

Mix the dressing into the salad, cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.

*Optional - 1 chopped avocado as garnish
* Optional – Croutons

Easy 1-2-3 Vegan Egg(free) Salad

We have missed the taste of egg salad and deviled eggs but not what they were made of.
I was SO happy to discover how to make a vegan version that satisfies that taste.
I have combined a few recipes and come up with something super simple that my family loves.
Play with the ingredients. Really anything goes.
What did you used to put in your more traditional egg salad?

Egg(free) Salad
1. A block of extra firm tofu, drained and dry
2. Crumble or mash it in bowl to desired egg-like consistency
3. Add the following “to taste” - as you would making traditional egg salad:
Sea salt
Turmeric...for color
Onion powder
Yellow mustard
Optional: nutritional yeast
Mix gently, garnish with lettuce and tomato
 and enjoy!
