Low Carb Coleslaw Ingredients

– Cabbage: Finely shredded cabbage is the base of this salad. You can buy pre-shredded cabbage to make things easier, or you can shred it yourself.

– Mayonnaise: I like to use regular full fat mayo in this recipe, but you could also use an olive oil based mayo to keep it paleo.

– Apple Cider Vinegar: This gives the coleslaw a little tang and acidity.

– Keto-Friendly sweetener: I use erythritol in this recipe, but you could use any type of sugar free sweetener that you like.

– Salt and Pepper: To taste. I like to use sea salt or Himalayan salt. Also freshly ground pepper is best.
