You can either serve this tasty, low carb slaw immediately or refrigerate it until chilled. The longer it sits in the refrigerator, the more the cabbage absorbs the flavors of the dressing.

Is Cole Slaw Keto Friendly?
This question is asked a lot. The answer is, ABSOLUTELY! Quite frankly, coleslaw is the perfect Keto side dish.
Because cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, that makes it low in carbs but loaded with nutrients.
How Many Carbs Are in Cabbage?
One cup of chopped, raw, green cabbage only has a total of 5 carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber. That means there are only 3 net grams of carbs in a cup.
Healthy Benefits of Cabbage
Not only is coleslaw a good choice for a low carb side dish, the main ingredient, cabbage, has many healthy benefits. It’s a great source for vitamins B6 and C, folate, fiber and antioxidants.
Studies show these nutrients help reduce inflammation, heart disease, arthritis and other chronic illnesses. You can read more about the nutritional benefits of cabbage in this article.
