Think coleslaw is just a side dish? This delicious winter slaw is packed full of good-for-you ingredients that undoubtedly deserve to be featured as the main course. Fresh tarragon has a delicate anise-like flavor that pairs nicely with the sweet dried fruits and earthy shredded cabbage. Quinoa adds heartiness to the mixture while pepitas deliver a decadent crunch as a finishing touch. The homemade vegan mayo ties everything together with a creamy, tangy kick that will leave you licking your fingers. You might even want to make a double batch of the mayo to use as a veggie sandwich spread or as the base for a spicy aioli—trust us, it’s that delicious!
