Creamy Avocado Coleslaw


Bill loves coleslaw. This isn’t traditional but it does give the same texture and makes a great side!

Avocados and coleslaw: it seems like a natural combination, and yet few people have tried it before now. Our avocado coleslaw is a healthy, keto-friendly alternative to the classic coleslaw recipe. Instead of sugar and heavy mayonnaise, this recipe is made from light, healthy ingredients like cabbage, avocado and lime juice, with a little sour cream to tie it all together. It’s so simple that you can make it any time of day. Whip up a batch before your family reunion or church potluck, or bring it to the neighborhood barbecue. It’s the perfect summer side dish–although it’s so delicious that you might be tempted to serve it as a main course.

If you’re a fan of avocado, you know that it can go with just about anything. Spread on toast, mashed into dips and guacamole, added to smoothies and even included in desserts. And better yet, this smooth, creamy vegetable is packed with vitamins and minerals. This recipe takes a traditionally unhealthy dish like coleslaw and adds a boost of nutrients with the health benefits of avocado. Once you’ve taken a bite, you’ll wonder why you ever made coleslaw without it!
