This tangy and delicious paleo coleslaw is the perfect summer side dish when it’s too dang hot to turn on the oven! Great for leftovers.
For the last few weeks, I’ve posted about this paleo coleslaw on my Instagram and Instagram Stories. For a while there was a heat wave in Southern California, and I just refused to turn on the oven in the upper 80-degree weather. Anytime that happens, my go-to side dish is a fresh raw salad, and this coleslaw came together for that very reason.
Anytime I make a salad like this, I honestly don’t measure any of the ingredients and just throw everything together while tasting as I go. However, I got several requests for this paleo coleslaw recipe, so here it is!
What’s awesome about this recipe is that it gets better the longer it sits. So if I’m planning to have this for dinner, I usually make it during the day so it can marinate and build up the flavors for hours. I usually make a big batch because I can enjoy it for the rest of the week as the paleo coleslaw gets tangier and yummier.
With only two of us in the house, making one batch of this lasts us for a while. I just love how budget friendly it is because all the ingredients are super cheap even when you buy them organic! It’s a perfect batch cooking recipe.
Also, did you notice that I uploaded a video for this paleo coleslaw recipe? I haven’t created a video in a long time because I just didn’t have the resources and time with the big move and wedding planning. Now that things have finally slowed down, I’m planning to do many more! What do you think? I have so much fun with filming and editing them so I hope you like this one!
