Welcome to one of the best salads that you will ever eat in your LIFE! My Copycat Erewhon Cabbage Slaw is a riff off of my favorite salad from LA’s most infamous grocery chain, but comes together at a fraction of the price. If you love a crispy, cool, and crunchy salad, then run to your kitchen and make this recipe ASAP – I promise, you won’t regret it.
Friends, there are very few times in my life where I will claim that a dish is the best thing I’ve had to eat. But when it comes to this cabbage slaw… I swear, it may just be the best thing I’ve had to eat. At least, as of lately. A few weeks ago, I made my way down to Los Angeles to visit my family, and as soon as I got there, I had to stop at my favorite place to eat in LA: Erewhon.
If you haven’t been to Erewhon yet, then you likely have at least heard of it, especially if you spend any amount of time on TikTok. This bougie, upscale grocery store is home to the most delicious $20 smoothies, the world’s best buffalo cauliflower, and nearly every health food that you could possibly want.
In addition to their amazing smoothie bar and hot food bar, they also have a prepared food section, which is where I first discovered their cabbage slaw. In fact, it looked so good that I cracked it open as soon as I got back to my car, and inhaled it in nearly five minutes. It was THAT good.
As soon as I finished it, I knew I had to create a version for you guys as soon as I got home. And lo and behold, I think I nailed it. This recipe tastes EXACTLY like Erewhon’s cabbage slaw, with two exceptions: one, this recipe makes a much bigger portion than Erewhon gives you, and two, it comes at a fraction of the price per serving. All of this to say, whether you are in Los Angeles or not, you NEED to make this recipe!
This slaw is naturally gluten-free, vegan-friendly, dairy-free, and grain-free, making it the perfect slaw that everyone will enjoy! Plus, it comes together with less than 10 ingredients – does it get any easier than that?!
To make this slaw, simply start by preparing your herbs and cabbage; chop the cilantro, parsley, and green onions, and thinly slice your cabbage. I use a handheld mandolin to get the cabbage especially thin, but you can also chop it thinly with a knife.
Once your herbs and cabbage are chopped, place them in a large bowl. Set it aside, then prepare the dressing by adding your dressing ingredients to a separate small bowl. Whisk them until they’re fully combined.
Finally, pour the dressing over the top of the cabbage, and toss to fully combine. Once your slaw is fully coated in the dressing, serve immediately, or transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to one week!
Since there is no lettuce in this slaw, it won’t get soggy! In fact, the longer it sits, the more the flavors will marinate, and the better it will taste! I personally love this slaw best on days 2 or 3, once the dressing has really soaked into the cabbage. Enjoy!

I live in LA and I’ve had the erewhon salad before but I prefer Nicole’s! Soooo good and so much easier on the wallet! This was a hit with my whole entire family. Even my husband who doesn’t really enjoy cabbage lol.
Natasha, what an honor!! These words mean so much to me, and I am so thrilled that you love this recipe so much! Thank you so much for making it, and for leaving such a kind review!
I love Erewhon’s baja cabbage salad as well, am so happy to have found your page. I had some today and Erewhon writes the ingredients on the price tag. Adding them here incase you want to compare (ingredients straight from Erewhon’s labeling):
purple cabbage, scallion, cilantro, extra virgin olive oil, rice vinegar, lemon juice, coconut aminos, sea salt.
This is great, Sara! Thank you so much for sharing this!
Obsessed! So many wonderful flavors and it’s so easy. Since discovering this recipe, I make it once a week and not stopping anytime soon ☺️
Woohoo! I am so happy to hear that, Alexa! Thank you so much for making this recipe, and for all of your support!
This is AMAZING! I was skeptical when I saw how much soy sauce was in the dressing but let me tell you it’s perfection. Like a smoky flavor! I didn’t have purple cabbage so I used green. I’ll keep making this because I’m about to inhale it all! 🙂
Yessss!! I am so glad you made this recipe and enjoyed it so much, Sarah! Thank you so much for making this recipe, and for leaving the best review!
