Is Cole Slaw Keto Friendly?
This question is asked a lot. The answer is, ABSOLUTELY! Quite frankly, coleslaw is the perfect Keto side dish. Since the Keto coleslaw dressing is mayo based, it's super creamy, adding healthy fat to your Keto diet.
Because cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, that makes it low in carbs but loaded with nutrients. Serve with your favorite protein like chicken or pork for a complete meal.
