This week has been c-r-a-z-y. My back is killing me – My 18-year-old is stressing over high school graduation, college, & life in general; my middle child thinks nobody cares about her and my son Nathan is all over the place. I’m always questioning my competence as a parent and adult in general and some days I think my guardian angel is drunk. Murphy’s Law has been in full effect over here. Have you ever had one of those days?
Was that a weak segway into this keto coleslaw recipe? Maybe, but stick with me here. This one is easy even when your back hurts & your life is out of control!
You can throw this one together in 5 minutes if you need a side dish ASAP. Oh, and this Keto Creamed Spinach is also a fabulous choice!
We used 2 ten-ounce bags of pre-shredded cabbage. You can also use a head of cabbage it that’s your thing. Either way – you’ll want to check out the tips below to eliminate Soggy Slaw Syndrome from your life forever!
To give the slaw a sweet, Memphis-style taste without adding sugar, I swapped the traditional recipe’s brown sugar with Sukrin Gold Brown Sugar Substitute. Worked like a charm.

Here’s how to eliminate saggy slaw syndrome from your life: Salt the cabbage ahead!
Anytime you dress a salad the contents of that dressing will always break down the cell walls of your cabbage. Also Known As: That thing when you have the perfect salad & you let it sit for a couple of minutes & it turns into a watery, mushy disaster.
Adding salt + a wilting window of an hour or so = crispy dry cabbage that won’t water your dressing down!
How To Prep Cabbage
- Remove the outer leaves & rinse with cold water.
- Cut the cabbage in half & then cut that half in ½. Throw away the core.
- On a cutting board julienne the cabbage by hand or with a mandoline.
- Salt the cabbage & put it in the fridge for 1-4 hours. (This extra step is worth it if you have time – refrigerating the cabbage releases moisture & will result in a less soggy slaw!)
- Rinse cabbage again with cold water & pat it dry with a paper towel or dry it in a salad spinner for 30 seconds.
