Giddyap Low Carb Coleslaw

Being who I am–a “unique” individual, to put it politely–I don’t like my recipes, simple as they may be, to taste just like everybody else’s recipes for the same dish. I mean, c’mon! I’m an old lady with pink hair for goodness sakes! You think conformity is my strong suit?

Usually, this doesn’t present a huge challenge because I put together dishes based on what I have around the kitchen that seems like it would taste good together. A real food scientist, I am. I seldom make something exactly the same way twice. But when I come up with something that I want to make the same way twice…well, I figure it’s worthy of a share here. So if you like your coleslaw to have just a little bite and not taste the same as everybody else’s coleslaw. I’ve got you covered, man.

I like to keep a bag of coleslaw mix in the fridge all the time for a quick round of crack slaw or an easy side dish I can conjure up at a moment’s notice. This low carb cole slaw is going into my regular dinner rotation. I hope you like it, too!
