Dairy-Free Confetti Cole Slaw

By Suzanne Havala Hobbs

Cole slaw is a staple at any picnic or potluck dinner, although some are a tad on the boring side when they’re made with dairy products. Why not add flair to your slaw and surprise everyone while keeping it dairy-free? Fresh ginger, rice vinegar, and red pepper flakes give this nutrient-packed slaw an extra kick. This salad will keep in the refrigerator for five to seven days.
