Woohoo! We're finally starting to get settled in our new house and I can begin proper cooking again! In a way it's sort of fun to take a break and make do with “fridge surprise”, but I miss the planning and knowing I'm going to eat something balanced, nutritious, and of course, low carb!

This horseradish coleslaw is all those things! I'm afraid that I still “cheated” and bought a bag of pre-made slaw mix – it's mostly cabbage with a little carrot. But I think I'm forgiven!

How to Make Horseradish Coleslaw

To make the coleslaw dressing, add mayo (full fat for zero carbs), prepared horseradish, salt and pepper to a bowl and mix well.

Chop up some green onions and add them to the cream mixture along with the slaw mix. Stir well.

Taste for seasoning and horseradishy-ness (technical term). Add more if it isn't strong enough; add more mayo (or even heavy cream or sour cream) if it is knocking your socks off with a single bite!Horseradish Coleslaw - a low carb and keto side dish recipe

I love having a dish of this in the fridge ready to go – not only does it get better after a few days, but it is the perfect side dish to so many meals!
