Make this crunchy, healthy paleo broccoli cabbage coleslaw for a lunch or a side dish with tacos, bbq chicken or any of your favorite meal!
When I think of coleslaw I think of crunchy, light on the cream, and bright shredded vegetables. I think of coleslaw as the perfect topping for fish tacos and barbecue chicken and the best salad topper (or salad itself). I think of coleslaw as packed with flavor, yet subtle, and bold enough to stand on its own.
This coleslaw is going to be all the best things that coleslaw is. And if you’ve ever had any bad experiences with it, this recipe will not be the case here. Because I don’t mess around with coleslaw. There isn’t a coleslaw that’s like, “yea, I suppose I could eat it.” For me, I’m either ALL in or all out.
Guess which one this is?
Ok, so we get down to the ingredients here. If I’m feeling up for it, I’ll shred my own carrots, cabbage, broccoli or another crunchy veggie. But, if you go to the store and you find one of those already prepared, ready for you bags of goodness, go ahead and grab it. Cause then you’ve got one less step. I found a great organic super blend with kale, carrots, cabbage and broccoli for the win! I also know that Trader Joe’s has a nifty package of shredded vegetables.
If you have apple cider vinegar in stock then use that, otherwise I’m sure that a white vinegar or even red wine vinegar would work great! Then we just need 1/2 cup of my easy paleo mayonnaise or another favorite mayo you have. For the seasoning we use sea salt, pepper and onion powder and then you mix it all together and you’ve got a slaw.
And if you are feeling adventurous, add fresh chopped parsley, or some slices of red onion, or avocado cubes because why not?!?
There you have it. The cole to your slaw.
Paleo Broccoli Cabbage Coleslaw

- 1/2 cup mayonnaise* see notes
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cracked pepper

If you bought a package of shredded veggies go ahead and put them in a bowl. Otherwise, use a cheese grater and get to shredding!
Add the paleo mayonnaise, acv, sea salt, cracked pepper and onion powder to the bowl and mix it all together.
