Rustic Honey Mustard Slaw

  • Author: Hannah


A rustic summer slaw recipe that uses fresh veggies chopped and tossed with a honey mustard sauce that is made with 5 simple ingredients (plus s+p). Results are a healthier, fresh take on the traditional Cole slaw! Can be made ahead, just keep veggies and sauce separate until ready to serve. 



For the honey mustard sauce:

  • 1/4 cup mayo 
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt + pepper to taste

For the rustic slaw:

  • purple cabbage
  • napa cabbage
  • baby carrots


  1. To make the honey mustard sauce, mixx all ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside while preparing the veggies.
  2. Chop both cabbages into thin shredded pieces. You don't need perfect uniformity here, it's definitely rustic to have a bit of variety in the cuts.
  3. Slice baby carrots into small circles. 
  4. Toss all veggies together with sauce. Serve immediately.*


If making ahead, prepare as instructed except leave the sauce separate and keep in fridge until ready to serve.
