You probably see the carrots in the photo and are first to exclaim that carrots are NOT KETO.... LOL (Hello keto police ;-)) Yes, I know. But when you are a busy mom of 3 and you can buy a bag of pre-shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix at the store, you deal with a few shreds of carrots. LOL. Remember my friends, Progress Over Perfection.
We used to go to this great little restaurant in our area that made coleslaw with green apples. They were so tart and crisp and offered a nice sweet crunch to the slaw. Since apples are out on keto, I decided to use jicama!!! Fresh jicama (don't buy the precut ones in the tubs because chances are they are dry and older) is best. Buy the jicama root and peel and chop it yourself. It'll be sweeter and crispier. This surprise ingredient is keto friendly and offers a nice crunchy, sweetness to any keto coleslaw recipe! Enjoy!
1 package coleslaw
1/2 cup jicama, julienned sliced
1/2 lb pastrami
4 oz swiss cheese, grated
1 cup avocado mayo
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
3-4 tablespoons Monkfruit sweetener
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
pinch of salt
