When I am feeling rushed for dinner or just need a quick vegetable, I usually throw together coleslaw. It is also the perfect thing to take to a cookout. Then you can have a great keto side to go with whatever meat being served.
Coleslaw has become a staple in our house lately. It is a wonderful fatty salad that can complement almost any meal. It really is a fat bomb in a bowl. Even with making my own mayonnaise, this salad is amazingly fast to prepare. Well, I do use bag coleslaw mix at the moment. When I can get fresh cabbage from my local farm, I use that. But I am incredibly spoiled lately with the ease of the bag mix. The nutrition information is for the coleslaw mix and my homemade mayonnaise.
Ingredients I use:
My recipe is based on my mom’s coleslaw. While she used a big pile of honey in hers, I use liquid stevia to keep the carbs to a minimum. Although that is my affiliate link, it is much cheaper if you can go to an actual Trader Joe’s store. You can use your choice of sweetener or leave it out entirely, but it does help to round out the flavor.
Like I said, I make my own mayonnaise. I used to be incredibly afraid of making it, but overcame my fear. You can find my recipe here. If you prefer to use store bought mayonnaise, you certainly can. Use whatever you are comfortable with.
We love Bubbies dill pickles! I’ve tried making pickles, but they never seem to come out crunchy. With these I don’t have to go through the trouble of making them, but the ingredients and technique are what I would use at home. The juice from these pickles add a wonderful flavor and a shot of probiotics as well to my coleslaw.
