Deep, rich colors in fruits and veg mean more antioxidants, did you know that? That’s why I’ve chosen red cabbage for this delicious sweet and tangy Raspberry Basil Coleslaw. Featuring my easy 5 minute Raspberry Basil Vinaigrette Dressing it’s perfect for Trim Healthy Mamas, keto and low carb dieters, and diabetics. While summer fresh berries and basil give the best flavor, this easy red cabbage coleslaw recipe is fabulous any time of year!
Ever since whisking up my Raspberry Basil Vinaigrette I’ve been looking for ways to use it. On all the things because right now it’s my favorite dressing! This easy red cabbage slaw was a natural of course. It’s also a great way to get those nonstarchies into your day.
This keto slaw could not be more simple! Simply mix the dressing with the shredded cabbage and there you go. Add fresh basil for more basil flavor if you like, too.
Many coleslaw recipes have onions and you can certainly add them if you want. I purposely left them out for 2 reasons. For one, it’s one less ingredient to fuss with. And for two, onions are more carby so keeping them out of the mix means less carbs overall.
Most of my posts tend to be quite long but I’m keeping this one short and sweet. The simple fresh flavors in this easy slaw recipe speak for themselves!
How To Fit This Raspberry Basil Coleslaw Into Your THM Meal Plans.
Since this simple low carb coleslaw recipe is made with healthy fats it’s a perfect non-starchy side dish for your THM S meals. Remember to start with a good, healthy protein too.
Your favorite fish, steaks, even chicken breast or thighs make a lovely compliment to my Raspberry Basil Coleslaw. You can even add it to a cold meat sandwich on your favorite low carb bread for some tangy, crunchy goodness.
