Whole30 + Keto Herby Lemon Coleslaw
Whole30 + Keto Herby Lemon Coleslaw – a healthy and bright coleslaw with fresh herbs and a homemade coleslaw dressing sweetened with date paste. Ready in 15 minutes! Paleo, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, sugar free, vegetarian, clean eating, real food.
I love coleslaw more than any other salad.
You just can’t beat that crunch.
In the winter, when cabbage is at it’s peak, I love to make coleslaw as quick and tasty side dish.
Coleslaw is so wonderful because it’s a salad that actually gets better the longer it sits. I love leftover colesaw the next day.
This whole30 + keto coleslaw is so simple to make. The dressing uses my homemade mayo as a base with some lemon juice, date paste (optional), salt and pepper.
The salad is shredded organic coleslaw mix (thanks for doing the chopping for me Trader Joe’s!) and tons of fresh herbs like parsley, dill and chives.
This is delicious served along with roasted chicken or salmon.
You will love feeding this clean eating, paleo, keto, whole30, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free, real food coleslaw to your family. And they will love to eat it.

Love this recipe!
Love it! Perfect coleslaw topping for my pulled pork tacos.
Serving it with pulled pork tacos is a delicious idea Caitlyn!
Easy & fast! So flavorful without being too sweet or dripping with mayo! Will be making this a lot this summer. Thanks!
I love that it was flavorful and not too heavy in the mayo Ginny. So glad you will be making it a lot this summer.
I made this for the first time to go with my Keto Instant Pot Carnitas! I feel like I’ve become a gourmet chef. All the flavors from the herbs are what make this dish!
So easy and so rewarding!
I love that you are starting to feel like a gourmet chef Daniele! Isn’t it the best feeling ever to make a delicious dinner? So glad you enjoyed the slaw.
This slaw recipe is sooooo good! I’m not a big fan of dill in things but this recipe is an exception!
I think the lemon helps balance and mellow the dill Kayla!
This was soooo good! I made it just as the recipe said, and chose to leave out the date paste. Delish! This will be on my monthly menu!
I am so glad you like my coleslaw and will be making it again Emily!
This is my go-to coleslaw recipe! Love the addition of the fresh herbs which makes it vibrant, healthy, and super yummy. I’ve tried this with several of your dishes and it does not disappoint!
I am so happy you liked my fish and chips Marta! I love to hear that they were restaurant quality! Sounds like you had a delicious meal. I am so glad you will be making them again.
So glad you liked it Marta!
Fantastic surprise! I love coleslaw, but can be picky and this is my new go-to recipe! Not too sweet, but not too tangy…just right! I did use a 14 oz bag of coleslaw, half the amount of herbs because I only had dried, and raw honey in place of date paste for convenience. Everyone loved it!
I am so happy you liked my coleslaw Ashley. I am so glad it is your new go to recipe. I agree, coleslaw should not be too sweet or tangy!
This is delicious! My husband can be picky with coleslaw, and he got seconds! I used pineapple juice to sweeten it but will definitely try it as written if I get my hands on date paste. Goes great with bbq pork too!
I am so glad that you liked my coleslaw Kate! Even better that it was hubby approved. I love that you sweetened it with pineapple juice. That sounds fantastic! These days we are all having to cook with what we have on hand.
I made these tonight and used dried herbs, still delicious! Aoli was great, too!
I am so happy you liked my coleslaw Stacey! These days we are all making do with what we have available. Dried herbs work great!
sooooo yummy! made it tonight w/the salmon cakes, whole fam loved it❤️
Yeah! So glad you liked this!
ate the leftovers yesterday for lunch w/the last salmon cake. still super delicious! will absolutely make again ?
So glad you liked it Jessica! Leftovers are the best!
Loved this slaw! I used regular store bought mayo so didn’t sweeten it at all. I thought it was good for dinner last night, but SOOOOO MUCH better for lunch today. Next time making it ahead and letting it marinate.
Omg, SO YUMMY and SO EASY!!!! The fresh dill is key! I didn’t have any parsley but it was fine without.
I agree, the fresh dill MAKES this beyond delicious!
By far the best slaw I’ve ever had, so herbaceous and amazing. I haven’t used fresh dill very much in my cooking but that’s about to change. Delicious.
The dill in this recipe may be my favorite also. It really makes the flavors pop!
So so good! This is the only whole 30 coleslaw I’ve EVER actually liked! Don’t skip the date paste. It adds such a good flavor!
Well this is the best compliment EVER! Thank you so much Cori! You’re a sweetheart!
I JUST MADE THESE. they’re fantastic. I made seven of them with this recipe and I froze four. I’ll let you know how they turn out from frozen.
Do he bones in canned salmon look like little pieces of glass?
I’m so glad you liked them Hannah! Thanks for taking the time to let me know! And yes, please let me know how the frozen turn out. They should reheat great! Yes, the bones look just like you would think, long thin bones. They should completely dissolve when mushed. To avoid all together, look for canned salmon that says “skinless and boneless”.
