Simple Sugar Free Coleslaw

This super simple sugar free coleslaw is cool and creamy. The dressing is slightly sweet and tangy , it is the perfect compliment to the cabbage. This is so simple and this takes very few ingredients and you will have most of them on hand.

This makes a simple guilt free coleslaw you can enjoy all summer . If you are looking for another creamy salad to bring to all of your summer cookouts check out this Strawberry Lemon Coleslaw. 

My family loves a good coleslaw when we grill and I was trying to find away to make our favorite side with fewer calories. Using light mayo really cuts a ton of calories and replacing the sugar  lightens it up even more. I recommend using a good quality light mayo since it is the base for the dressing . If you make these slight changes to your traditional coleslaw you will never be able to tell the difference. This is great for a family but if you are serving a crowd I recommend doubling the recipe.

Notes

This may not seem like enough dressing but once it chills and it produces it’s own water, this coleslaw is perfectly creamy. 
This is best made a few hours before serving 
If this sits and gets watery I recommend draining off the extra liquid

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
My coleslaw is dry should I add more dressing? 

 No, once this coleslaw is put in the fridge there is just enough salt to release it’s natural water.

How long is the coleslaw good for?

Coleslaw is good up to three days but the longer it sits the more water is produced . If it gets too watery it can be drained .

Do I have to keep this chilled?

Yes , this has mayo in it so it does have to stay cold.

I like a different sugar substitute , can I use it?

As long as it is similar to Splenda and it’s measurements are similar to it , Swerve is a great alternative.

We aren’t fans of coleslaw with sugar, your sugar free recipe was absolutely perfect. It’ll be on our rotation all cookout season.

I love coleslaw, it’s my favorite side dish for roast chicken. Your recipe is so perfectly seasoned! Doesn’t need any sugar, it’s super flavorful and just perfect as is. It’s the best homemade coleslaw I’ve ever made so I will come back to it again and again!

I would have never thought I could use splenda on coleslaw. I had some friends over and a couple of them are diabetic and this was an easy recipe I knew they could eat. Very easy to prepare.
