Avocado & Lime Coleslaw

Avocado is used in place of mayonnaise in this coleslaw recipe.  It’s creamy, tangy and just delicious.   A great sugar-free, low carb, keto side dish that is perfect for the summer.

 You could spice this up a bit by added a couple of chopped jalapeno peppers too!   The beauty of any coleslaw is that it is just so easy to make too! Shred a cabbage, add some flavours and a creamy sauce…voila!   I also find that this tastes better after a few hours in the fridge for the flavours to develop.

Mayo Free Coleslaw

The avocado dressing in this coleslaw recipe gives a creamy dressing that you won’t miss the mayonnaise. It makes a great dairy free recipe that you can bring to a cookout, picnic or BBQ. As it’s dairy free you don’t have the worry of the mayonnaise “spoiling” in the heat.

I’ve kept this coleslaw recipe very simple with just white cabbage and green onions. You could add red cabbage and a teeny tiny bit of grated carrot for a more colourful dish.

    I never thought to use avocado in place of mayo! I’m not a mayo person, especially in dishes that sit in summer heat at a bbq. If you’re interested, I’d love for you to share a post in my link up tomorrow. The explanation is right on my main menu under ‘Tell ’em Tuesdays’.

    Great idea to use avocado instead of mayo! I’m definitely going to do this next time we make coleslaw, which won’t be long because we eat a lot of coleslaw! 🙂
