This keto coleslaw dressing recipe was passed down from my great grandmother to my mother. I now make it at least once a week to eat on my giant, Bearish coleslaw salads and simply adapted it to be a low-carb/keto/sugar-free variation. I use stevia, but you can adapt it to use the sweetener of your choice. It is light with the perfect combination of tang from the apple cider vinegar and sweetness from the stevia. As for adjusting the salt and pepper, I do adjust the dressing itself but when I add it to the coleslaw, I typically add quite a bit more salt and pepper since the cabbage itself needs a little boost.
People often ask me what I ate in the year that I lost over 140 pounds, and this is it! I ate a lot of coleslaw with this dressing. I mean, I really ate a whole lot of it! Giant bowls! This dressing is perfect over the cabbage, and that cabbage will fill your stomach like nothing else. It provides you with a great combination of micro-nutrients at the same time. It’s crazy, because I am not even tired of it after all of these many months. I even crave it still. You need to try it if you haven’t already.
To make this a successful keto coleslaw dressing, you need to be mindful of the carbohydrates in both your mayonnaise and in your sour cream. Mayonnaise manufacturers have taken to adding sugars to their products even though mayonnaise traditionally was a zero-carb food. Check the labels.

This amount of dressing will top the coleslaw from a large head of cabbage very generously. It may be too much, depending on your preference. Add about half at first and stir it into your cabbage. Add more if desired. Any extra will keep for a couple of weeks in your refrigerator.
Cabbage is Super-Filling!
Cabbage is super-filling, which is a great thing on those days when you are just not feeling completely satisfied. Coleslaw is a double-win because it has apple cider vinegar, which further helps bring you to fullness.
Yes, I Eat It A Lot!
Coleslaw is pretty much a staple around here, especially since a head of cabbage is such a great keeper. It’s often the last thing I have before another grocery store run. Marry it to 6-8 ounces of steak, and I’ve got pretty much all I ever need!
I typically use about a half head of cabbage in one of these bowls, though it does depend on how I’m feeling and how bulky that head of cabbage is.
You’ll find my steak to be in the 6-8 ounce range, right there on top. I typically also add onions or bell peppers.
