Low Carb Mexican Slaw

Low Carb Mexican Slaw is a delicious Mexican take on a classic coleslaw. A refreshing blend of chili, coriander and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, combined with some classic coleslaw ingredients make this dish a stand out. It’s a great coleslaw recipe for BBQ’s to go with grilled meat and fish as well. The thing that I love about coleslaw is the flavors develop over time, so eating slaw for left overs is delicious.

Cabbage is a fantastic cruciferous vegetable that is available all year round. It is generally cheap to buy and it packs a fantastic nutritional punch. Cabbage is really high in fibre and is a great source of Vitamins C and K. It’s a great anti-inflammatory food and high in anti-oxidants, and on top of that, it’s a versatile, low carb vegetable that can taste amazing, especially in dishes like this one.

Use this slaw as a side dish for Mexican food such as burrito’s, tacos and salad bowls. Low Carb Mexican Slaw tastes great served with melt in your mouth Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Brisket, or the lovely drunken recipe for Sugar Free Slow Cooker Pulled Pork.  Serve it with some Low Carb Mexican Tortilla’s on the side for a really simple Mexican themed meal.

Try some of these great tasting low carb Mexican recipes, such as Mexican Cauliflower Rice and the classic but simple to make Salsa Picante, and you have the beginnings of a Mexican feast. Add some Guacamole  and the fabulous low carb, creamy cheesy dip, Chilli Con Queso, and it truly is a feast.

If you want to go all out with your Mexican feast, then I also suggest that you atry the lovely low carb sugar free recipe for a Low Carb Margarita Cocktail. It’s a fantastic recipe and tastes just like an authentic, sugar laden version.

The perfect meal to share with friends and family.
