  • 1 Green cabbage, medium - Approx. 6-8 cups, shredded
  • 1 Bunch of kale - Approx. 3 cups, shredded
  • 1 Bunch of radish - Approx. 10 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 Green onions (scallions) - Thinly sliced
  • 1 Handful of cilantro - Approx. 4 tablespoon, chopped


  • ½ cup Sour cream - Greek yogurt is a suitable substitute
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Lemon, juiced - Approx. 4 tablespoon
  • 2 tablespoon Apple cider vinegar - red wine vinegar is a suitable substitute
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard - grainy and smooth work well
  • 1 tablespoon Honey - Agave syrup is a suitable substitute
  • salt/pepper to taste


  • 3 tablespoon Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • Cilantro leaves


Prep vegetables

  • Using a food processor, mandolin or a sharp knife, thinly slice cabbage and place it in a large bowl.
  • Strip kale from stems and chop leaves finely. (Pro tip: washing kale after it is chopped removes some of the bitterness and makes it more palatable). Add chopped kale to bowl.
  • Thinly slice radish and scallions and add to bowl along with chopped cilantro.

Make dressing

  • Add all dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk vigorously. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Mix and plate coleslaw

  • Combine dressing with sliced vegetables. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Plate slaw and garnish with pepitas and more cilantro.
