Sweet & Tangy Maple Tahini Coleslaw


As I sit here writing this, I am 8 months pregnant with my second child. T-shirts hang off my belly like bed-skirts, I speak in primal grunts with a two-year-old all day, regularly find food stains on my midsection, and to top off this poised aesthetic, I'm eating sloppy joes now.

Lunch lady vibes, through and through.

But if sweet, tangy, Southern delights are wrong - than honey, I don't want to be right.

And nothing enables my sloppy joe habit better than this crunchy & delectable maple tahini coleslaw. 

Perfect for sandwiches, as a side, or as a flavorful addition to any Southern platter or backyard cook-out - this delicious recipe is sure to satisfy. 

Prep time: 5 miN

Total time: 5 MIN 

Makes 6-8 small servings


For the Salad Base

  • 16 oz. coleslaw mix (shredded green cabbage & carrots)

  • 1 handful purple cabbage

  • 1 handful cilantro

For the Maple Tahini Dressing

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 2 Tbsp water

  • 3 Tbsp tahini

  • 1 Tbsp miso

  • 2-3 Tbsp organic maple syrup

  • 1/2 tsp dried ground mustard powder

  • 1/4 tsp celery seed

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Start by combining the shredded green and purple cabbage, carrots, and cilantro in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.


Next combine the remaining ingredients for the dressing, and whisk well in a small bowl before drizzling over the coleslaw veggies.


Serve atop my Smoky Barbeque Lentil Sloppy Joes or along side the Southern-inspired dish of your choosing.
