Paleo Side of Slaw

For years, and I do mean, like 45 years (!) I would not even go near cole slaw … the mere thought of that blobby thick mayonnaise cabbage would make me gag.


How nice, huh?

Now? I looooooove a good slaw … but no, not when it’s just a mass of mayo and shredded cabbage tossed in a bowl and called Cole Slaw. No thanks.

So today, I’m giving you the most simpliest, cleanest version of cole slaw you can find … and please, don’t judge my cooking skills on this one, ok?

Thank you!

Ready Freddy?

bag of shredded multi-colored slaw. You know the one with carrots, red cabbage, green cabbage, the works
Tessemae’s Lemon Garlic Salad Dressing. You can find this in most grocery stores now in the chilled produce section.

Pull out how much slaw you want.

Shake your bottle of Lemon Garlic really well and drizzle over your slaw.

Toss well.



Just a personal preference but I do NOT dress the slaw ahead of time as it will make it wimpy which may have been another prior life ick factor. I like my slaw crispy and if you dress it ahead of time (an hour or so) it becomes limp. Wimpy. Icky.  Just sayin.

How about you? Do you like traditional cole slaw or is this much more appealing?

Let me know!

forward to sharing with some of these

  1. I love traditional coleslaw but I also love it with a good salad dressing. The fuji apple dressing from Panera is my new favorite. I know you said that you don't like to make it ahead of time but an easy shortcut to making it slightly wilty is microwaving the cabbage a little bit.


  2. Oh, that's a good tip for when you want a little less crunch! Thanks for sharing that!
