How well do you really know coleslaw?

Coleslaw comes from the Dutch word, koolsla, which is a shortened version of the term koolsalade, meaning, cabbage salad. Further down the road, the name changed again from koolsla to coleslaw when Dutch immigrants came to America. Shredded cabbage tossed in a mayo-based dressing (usually spiked with vinegar or lemon juice) is what we’ve come to know as Americanized coleslaw.

Some strange coleslaw facts:

    • Believe it or not, there are coleslaw recipes that include beer in the ingredient lineup. You can find them under the names Beer Slaw or Man Slaw. 🍺
    • The heaviest cabbage recorded to date weighed 138.25 pounds! Scott A. Robb proudly presented it at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, Alaska on August 31, 2012. Now that’s A LOT of slaw!
    • Fayetteville, Tennessee, hosts an annual Slawburger Festival every April. This huge event is centered around their famous tradition of coleslaw topped burgers. Activities include a coleslaw recipe contest, live music, a slaw burger eating contest, and a scavenger hunt. Fun!
    • Coleslaw wrestling is a thing. Yep, a bunch of gals grappling in a pile of slaw. Furthermore, this interesting (and slightly disgusting) activity was actually featured on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and the Travel Channel. 😱

Hip tips for making the best keto coleslaw:

    • Don’t skip the refrigeration step! Giving the cabbage shreds time to “marinate” in the sweet and tangy mayo dressing only enhances the flavor of this yummy low carb side dish.
    • Feel free to make swaps with the ingredients to your preference. Readers have mentioned swapping the apple cider vinegar for balsamic and the Dijon for brown mustard.
    • This keto coleslaw recipe is SO MUCH MORE than just a side dish. Try it as a topper on burgers, hot dogs, BBQ shredded chicken or pork, corned beef, steak… the list goes on!

Top it with some keto coleslaw!

Personally, I love adding a scoop of coleslaw to keto cheese-shell street tacos. Whether they’re stuffed with carnitas or grilled fish, the coleslaw adds a whole new dimension! Yum!

My Hip sidekick Jenna tried out this recipe and here’s what she thought:

“Keto or not, this is the best tasting coleslaw I’ve ever had! The sauce is creamy, tangy, and full of flavor. I also love the ease of using a bag of coleslaw mix. No need to prep or chop anything, just mix the sauce, toss, and you’ve got a delicious low carb coleslaw!”

    Oh wow! It is so flavorful and gets even better the next day! It’s hard to believe it’s Keto. Even my non Keto family members couldn’t tell. This is going to be my go to recipe for anything bbq from now on! Thank you so much!

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Jill G! SO glad you enjoyed it.

  2. michellebadair

    We keep making this because it’s so easy and delicious. I use one less tbsp of sweetener, which is just a preference, but it’s great either way.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh good! Super happy to hear that! 🙌 Thanks for commenting!

  3. cheri bruning

    Yum!! I was out of white vinegar so used balsamic. Delish and I don’t like coleslaw!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Cheri! I bet you that made a fantastic swap. So glad you enjoyed it❤

  4. Hallie

    Can I use spicy brown instead of dijon?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! It looks like that should work. Just be sure to check the ingredients of the variety you choose. Enjoy!

  5. RKB

    I don’t like coleslaw, but this was fabulous! Both picky kids said it was pretty good and husband went back for seconds (he never goes for seconds)!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! I love that!
