To prepare the coleslaw: Place green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrot in a bowl.
Stir in the onion, parsley, jalapeno, and celery seed. Give it a gentle toss to make sure that all the vegetables are equally distributed in the bowl.

Drizzle the salad with the dressing and toss. Sprinkle it with walnuts and serve.
- The prep time listed below includes the 30 minute refrigeration time. If you decide to let it sit in the fridge please add more time to the total time.
- Want to sweeten it up a bit? Now, I know that my version here is a no-sugar coleslaw and many of you might prefer your coleslaw with a bit of sweetness. If that us you, feel free to add 1-tablespoon maple or agave syrup to the simple coleslaw dressing.
- Don’t have walnuts on hand? Substitute an equal amount of toasted, chopped almonds instead.
- Looking to up the nutrition? Omit the green cabbage and make a bright and beautiful red cabbage slaw with 4 cups thinly sliced red cabbage (about the amount you will get from ½ medium head of red cabbage) and turn it into a purple cabbage coleslaw.
- Want to make this a keto coleslaw (no mayo)? Omit the grated carrots and simply replace it with an equal amount of green and red cabbage.
- Have guests who can’t live without mayonnaise in their coleslaw? No worries, add 2 tablespoons of your favorite mayonnaise (I love vegan mayo - this brand (affiliate link) is my favorite ) into the dressing, give it a shake, and drizzle the cole slaw with it.
- Don’t have red onion on hand? Swap it with green onions.
- Looking for leftovers? This healthy coleslaw recipe will last up to 2 days stored in an airtight container in the fridge. I recommend only 2 days because, after the two-day mark, the coleslaw starts to breakdown and become too soggy.
