Coleslaw, Just Like Mom's | Low Carb | Keto
Updated: Nov 25, 2019
This coleslaw is a great make ahead holiday side dish for Thanksgiving, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Backyard Picnic, etc. It is one of my favorite side dishes to go along with ham, turkey, chicken, corned beef, or any type of bbq. I go the extra mile and I shred my own cabbage (this is what makes it just like mom's). I use a box grater or food processor to make very small pieces of cabbage. I personally feel the freshly grated cabbage has so much more flavor. But if you don't have the time to shred your own cabbage, go ahead and buy it already shredded in your grocery store. I prefer my coleslaw to have a touch of sweetness (just like mom's) by simply adding in a sweetener, such as Swerve, Allulose or Monkfruit. I also add in a bit of fresh pineapple juice. This will add in a few more carbs, but oh, it's so good! And really honestly it doesn't add up too man carbs per serving.
