The Dairy-Free Spicy Slaw…

To make a simple spicy slaw,  you need to make a spicy mayo.  Only this time I used a vegan-mayo instead of the usual mayonnaise.  Why? 

When I found out one of our guests had a lactose intolerant condition, I knew I needed to switch out the mayonnaise to something else.

I bought a jar of vegan-mayo (spelled as Vegenaise) at Wholefoods. It is a vegan mayo dressing and a sandwich spread, similar to the taste of mayonnaise. 

But it is completely dairy-free.

My friend Nicole gave me her recipe for the spicy condiment she uses on her sandwiches, using only 3 ingredients, the Vegenaise, Dijon mustard, and some soy sauce.   

Together, they created flavors similar to horseradish.  Nice and spicy!  And, it made the perfect condiment for these sandwiches!

Ingredients Needed for Roast-Beef Sandwiches with Spicy Slaw:

  • 3 Tbsp. Vegenaise (or Mayonnaise)
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 head of small green cabbage- thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion- thinly sliced
  • 1/2 to 3/4 pound thinly sliced Roast-Beef, or Corned Beef
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 baguette or a loaf of Italian Semolina Bread

How to Make Roast Beef and Corned Beef Sandwiches with Spicy Slaw?

1. I bought 2 loaves of Italian bread to make these sandwiches.  The first one is filled with sliced corned beef and the other with sliced roast beef. 

2. Each loaf of bread is splattered with some spicy mayo and topped with sliced cabbage.

3. These sandwiches came together very fast and easily, about 10 minutes to prepare them and serve.

Options to serve it with…

Both loaves, sliced on a diagonal were served with some beer, red wine, and our favorite crunchy broccoli salad and a super-easy lasagna as a side dish.

The sandwiches turned out really good!  They were so easy, I might make them again for the Super Bowl game this weekend!

These sandwiches are also good with baked ham or pastrami.  Try them.

Enjoy!

  1. We're not actually having a party but will root for the Broncos since we both lived in Denver but at different times. My husband has been searching for something I can make for him. Big mistake telling him to print out recipes he wants me to make. My list just doubled! But, he would love this sandwich. It is beyond beautiful! Great sounding slaw.

    1. Thanks Tricia! I know what you mean! My husband will too, since he lived in Denver for a few years too!
      Have a great weekend! enjoy!
