This keto coleslaw, or “keto slaw,” recipe is made without mayo and is instead marinated in a tangy, dressing that is sweetened using a sugar-free sweetener. I love serving it alongside my BBQ Keto Chicken Casserole Recipe or my Keto Slow Cooker Pork Roast. I also really love it with Keto Pulled Pork. It is crunchy and bright, making it a delicious way to get in your veggies!

Keto coleslaw ingredients:

  • Cabbage: This is the main ingredient and can be purchase as a whole head or pre-chopped!
  • Pickles, apple cider vinegar: Pickles and vinegar adds acidity and a tang, which is needed in coleslaw.
  • Onion, green pepper: These veggies add a crunch and extra flavor.
  • Sugar-free sweetener: I like Besti Monk Fruit with Allulose sweetener best. You can also use Swerve Granulated or Lakanto Monkfruit Classic in this recipe. The measurement would be the same. 

Steps for making marinated keto coleslaw:

shredded cabbage in a clear bowl

Step 1: Shred the cabbage, dill pickle, and onion in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a grater to grate them finely. Add to a large bowl.

Can you eat coleslaw on keto?

Most coleslaw recipes include sugar, so your classic coleslaw is most likely NOT keto-friendly. To make a keto coleslaw, you need to use a sugar-free sweetener.

What kind of cabbage is best for coleslaw?

You can choose any cabbage you can find. For this recipe, I used green cabbage, but you can use red, savoy, or Napa cabbage. If you want a pop of color, many people will use a combination of different cabbage varieties. If you want to speed this already quick recipe up, you can also purchase a pre-shredded bag of cabbage or a bagged coleslaw mix.
