finished slaw from easy citrus coleslaw recipe

Coleslaw is an easy, tasty go-to when you’re looking for a versatile vegetable side for your meal when you want to balance a rich meal with a light salad, or when you need to add some crunch to your tacos and wraps. 

This creamy citrus coleslaw is a refreshing spin on traditional slaw that incorporates zingy lime and bright cilantro alongside cool cabbage. Lighter than the deli favorite, this zesty side goes great with fish tacos.

Coming in at 4 net carbs, you can work citrus coleslaw into any eating plan, whether you’re Primal, keto, or paleo. Want to make it vegan? Swap in vegan mayo in place of regular mayo. 

The best part? This citrus slaw comes together in five minutes! Bring it to a backyard BBQ, pack it along for your next beach day, or add a little citrusy crunch to a dinner of grilled meat or veggies.
