I always have many recipes in the works, but after we made this Whole30 coleslaw during our Sunday meal prep I knew I had to post it ASAP! This recipe was adapted from Physical Kitchness, although it is delicious as she made it, too. I love her site for lots of Whole30 meals and inspiration.
Coleslaw is a great side to bring to an event, especially if you are on Whole30, because it travels well. It also gets yummier the longer it is around which is not long in our house. IMHO, too often you see poor cabbage swimming in mayo and that is the only thing you can taste in many versions of coleslaw. Mayo can also be difficult to find while on Whole30. Make your own mayo with this easy to make recipe, but this Whole30 coleslaw actually does not even use mayo and is still creamy thanks to coconut milk.
Additions to the Recipe
Sweet and sour is one of my favorite taste combinations and if you add the crunch of cabbage and nuts, I always am in! For this Whole30 coleslaw, we used a mix of green and purple cabbage. I love not only the color purple cabbage brings, but the texture as well. Cilantro and green onion are two flavors that work well with coconut so those were added to the slaw. We love spicy food so of course a jalapeno had to jump into the fun. For a heartier meal, we have topped the slaw with cooked chicken and sometimes cooked shrimp.
Top with coconut, chopped nuts, or even avocado slices for your plated fat for you Whole30’ers and you have an awesome meal for anytime of day. Seriously, you need to make this one, stat!! I would love to hear what changes you make, if any, to this crispy and creamy slaw.
