Super Easy High Fat Coleslaw Dressing

Coleslaw. It just brings visions of summer, barbecues and in our house, hamburgers. And that’s exactly what’s happening tonight . Shortly I’ll be turning my Keto Mammoth Meatloaf into patties for barbecuing (or perhaps in the frying pan, we will see if the sunshine holds out) and what better to go with them then some ‘slaw?

I have the perfect dressing for my favorite broccoli salad (I’ll share soon) and this one is incredibly similar – they are both mayo based and incredibly simple. Like so simple you’ll wonder why you wasted money on coleslaw dressing all this time. Really.


1 cup of mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip, Mayo. High fat if you are following a Keto diet)

2 Tbsp Splenda (granular) or sweetener of choice

2 Tbsp cider vinegar

2 Tsp black pepper or to taste

1/2 Tsp salt (My preference is sea salt or pink Himalayan, use what you have handy)

1/4 Tsp dry mustard

1/8 Tsp celery seed

  1. Whisk together ingredients.
  2. Toss with coleslaw of choice
  3. Refrigerate at least four hours.
  4. Toss well before serving





We are a family of 5 following a ketogenic lifestyle, for the most part anyways. Both of our families have extensive histories of diabetes (both juvenile and Type 2) that we felt, for our own health, and the wellbeing of our children (and we have three children, two boys and a girl, 5, 2 and 3 months old) that a lower carb lifestyle was just right for us. Personally, both my husband and I have been on weight loss paths for awhile. Myself being over weight to obese my entire life, and my husband packing on weight in the last few years as I lost weight. Where I lost 200+ lbs after our first son was born, my husband gained at least sixty. Together we are pushing through the plateaus. Now, being realistic, we know that children need carbohydrates, and before you judge us, let me say, we do not deprive our children carbs. Not at all. Our eldest has cereal when he wants it, sandwiches in his lunch for school and home made cookies (made with sugar and flour), we just make our main dinner ketogenic. We do, however, make cookies with coconut oil, and we do on occasion sub other ingredients to reduce the amount of sugar in things. We have a realistic outlook, and will never deprive our children, so please be mindful of this before you comment that we are awful parents.
