A very simple recipe for a keto friendly coleslaw. Shredded cabbage, sliced dill pickles and onions, in a homemade creamy garlic and dill dressing. A perfect companion for grilled fish, and other meats.


  • Knife and Cutting Board
  • large salad bowl
  • small mixing bowl
  • serving tongs


Coleslaw Mix

  • 7 cups cabbage sliced/shredded
  • 1 small onion sliced thin
  • 2 stalks green onion finely chopped
  • 5 medium dill pickles quartered and sliced thin

Creamy Dill Coleslaw Dressing

  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons pickle juice
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dill dried or fresh (triple the amount for fresh dill)
  • salt and pepper


Creamy Dill Coleslaw Dressing

  • Peel and clean garlic and slice in half lengthwise, turn and slice garlic into paper thin slices.
  • Add sliced garlic to a small mixing bowl along with pickle juice, mayonnaise, mustard, dill. Mix well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Allow the dressing to sit and marinade while you prepare the coleslaw mix.

Coleslaw Mix

  • Cut chunks of cabbage into manageable portions and using either a sharp knife or a box grater, shred the cabbage into small matchstick like pieces.
  • Half and quarter the dill pickles into spears and then cut widthwise into thin quarter slices.
  • Clean and peel a small onion and cut into thin matchstick slices along the grain.
  • Add everything to a bowl and combine well. Add desired amount of dressing and toss to combine. Season to taste and enjoy!


Make the dressing first and allow it to sit and rest for a few minutes while you prepare the coleslaw, this will allow the garlic and dill to infuse into the dressing and make it oh so yummy. 
P.S. this dressing is also an amazing sauce for fish!
Fresh vs. Dried Dill: Either can be used for this recipe, but remember dried dill is far more intense that fresh dill, use 3 tablespoons of fresh dill in place of 1 tablespoon of dried dill. 
Leftovers: Unlike lettuce, cabbage holds up pretty well in the fridge. Cover leftovers and store in the fridge for use within a few days.
