Low-Carb Coleslaw — Side Dish Recipe

I don’t like slaw. That’s a fact. I don’t like the taste of it, and I don’t like the way it feels in my mouth. I’ve even tried to like it, but I can’t. So, when I was constructing this recipe, I decided to keep it simple and use what I had in the fridge. Now, I LOVE the taste of coleslaw. I love it so much that I like to “dress” it up with things like bacon and chicken. And then I love to eat it with a side of bacon. But I don’t really like the way I feel after eating it.

  2. In a medium-sized mixing dish, place the cabbage.
  3. Season with salt and lemon juice.
  4. Stir in the cabbage and let aside for 10 minutes to allow it to wilt somewhat. Any surplus liquid should be discarded.
  5. Combine the cabbage, mayonnaise, and optional mustard in a mixing bowl.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Try the same method using fennel or thin celery root rods that have been pre-cooked for a few minutes in mildly salted water. It’s also delicious! If kept in the refrigerator, the coleslaw will last for 2-3 days.

When you think of coleslaw, it’s usually one of those dishes that combine veggies with some mayo and a dose of dressing.
