This recipe is inspired by the traditional Coleslaw but I have changed it to fit a healthy low-carb diet. There is no added sugar and I added a small twist by using Russian dressing instead of the regular mustard-based dressing. All this, especially the sriracha, horseradish and pickled cucumber give it a wonderful flavour boost! You can serve it as a side to meat dishes or wait for my next recipe post ;-)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi Martina, Thanks for the recipe. I'm a big fan of cabbage and wanted to make something with it for a long time. So I'm more than happy that I found your recipe 😊
The dressing sounds delicious as well and it's a good opportunity to give the homemade mayonnaise another try (the first time it didn't really work out 😉 )


Thank you Susanne! Hope that this time the mayo goes well. In case it helps, I always use an electric mixer and drizzle the oil in very slowly until thick.  I also add the lemon juice or vinegar after the mayo is done so that it doesn't affect the thickening.


That is one delicious slaw Martina! We never tried combining horseradish and sriracha before, sounds super spicy and super yummy😊 Thank you very much for the wonderful post, excellent work! Panos and Mirella


Thank you! Hope you like it 😊


I liked the balance and spiciness of this dressing. Only thing is, it seemed a bit runny to me.
I used coconut milk (not cream) and only 1 TBSP of lemon juice, but still too much liquid. Will try sour or coconut cream next time.


Hi Bill, which mayo did you use? I make my own quite thick so the dressing was fine. Hope it's better with soured cream 😊


My own homemade- very thick as well. Oil totals about 1 Cup and I use 1 egg yolk and 1 whole egg. If I do use coconut milk in the future, I'll just use the cream portion instead. Sour cream is definitely next. My daughter really enjoyed it as well! Didn't last for more than 3 days- dipped it in veggies and used it as salad dressing. Reubens are next!


That's great, I'm glad it was a success 😊 Yes, try just the creamed part of coconut milk and it should be fine.


Oh I loooovee russian dressing! Will have to give it a try 😊


Hope you like it! 😊
