Keto Asian Coleslaw

Sharing is caring!

This crisp, lightly sweet keto asian coleslaw is a great addition to your weekly meal plan.

I created this recipe after we went out to dinner and I saw an Asian inspired coleslaw as a side on the menu. Intrigued, I took a bite of my friend's side (she ordered it) and found the taste to be amazing. I knew I had to replicate it in my keto kitchen.

This recipe has a net carb count of 3 net carbs per serving which comes from the cabbage & red pepper. By omitting the red pepper you can reduce the carb count some. Scroll down to the recipe card for more details.

Your New Favorite Way To Eat Cabbage

After a few trial and errors I found the best flavor came from a blend of MCT oil (known to increase ketone production) and nutty sesame oil. Then, I sprinkle in some seasonings to round out the flavor.

This keto asian coleslaw dressing can also be used as a salad dressing to dress up your favorite greens.

But, I prefer it drizzled onto cold, crisp cabbage. Then, I top my keto asian coleslaw with some sesame seeds (toasted if I haven't been lazy) and some slivered almonds.

I can't wait for you to try this!
