The best Keto Coleslaw recipe with an extra added boost of healthy with chopped kale and extra red cabbage to complete this perfect summer salad. This low carb coleslaw will be impossible for your family to resist.
This Keto Coleslaw recipe is rightttttt up there with my favorite Keto Broccoli Salad recipe. I think I’ve realized something after just typing that… I love mayonnaise based salads. Not ashamed and hope you don’t mind us going down this road of unbelievably amazing summer salads. Lets go. 😉
So just like our broccoli salad this has some little extra health spin to it. KALE! I’m actually a bit of a kale fan in certain context. It has to be hiding in something, especially when there is mayonnaise involved, it’s the perfect companion for kale. Has anyone else ever been able to enjoy just a plain kale salad?
So while this broccoli slaw recipe is perfect as well this keto coleslaw recipe has an extra healthy kick with some kale and extra cabbage because I LOVEEEEEEE cabbage. If you Egg Roll in Bowl recipe doesn’t prove that point I don’t know what would.
Why is cabbage so delicious? Well perhaps that is why coleslaw is a HUGE favorite of ours. Cabbage WITH MAYONNAISE.. it’s just the perfect combination for our tastebuds and souls as we kick off this summer.
So first we’ve got to mention the tip I was taught by another to make that perfect sweet and crunchy slaw. This picture here above shows us step 1 of making the perfect keto coleslaw.
Tips for that perfect flavorful sweet crunch Keto coleslaw
One of the ways I’ve found to make delicious coleslaw is by first soaking the coleslaw vegetables into one large bowl with some salt and sweetener of your choice.
Let them mingle together for a bit. The sweet and salt mingles into the coleslaw and really does a huge difference vs. just throwing a coleslaw dressing in.
You want to then rinse the coleslaw mix under cold water well. Like realllllllly well, otherwise you’ll end up with very sweet and very salty coleslaw mix and I can say from experience… you do not want that.
You then want to get rid of any extra water in the coleslaw. A salad spinner is the easiest and simplest way to do that. If you do not have a salad spinner removing the water with paper towel by pressing the coleslaw mix until no water strains out works as well, just a bit more work.
TIP: Make sure there is NOT a ton of excess water in the coleslaw as your dressing with sit in a pool on the bottom of the slaw instead of being wrapped around each delicious bite.
