Looking for an easy and healthy side dish for your summer meals? Look no farther than this paleo, GAPS, whole30 and vegan Quick & Simple Coleslaw!
It’s almost summer. Down here in the south, it’s been feeling like summer for the past month, but I know it’s going to get even hotter. So I’m getting prepped with the easy summer dinners. Er, I mean, side dishes.
Yeah… sometimes side dishes become meals in our house. Especially when it gets steamy out and I’m too tired to make a full meal! #momlife
Yep, easy is always a winner for me. And this coleslaw is about as easy as a recipe comes! It’s full of fresh veggies that I usually always have on hand, and the rest of the ingredients are easily found in a real-foodie’s kitchen, too.
Unlike some slaws or salads, there’s no fancy dressing to mix up, either. Just a little oil and vinegar and you’re good to go!
It didn’t take long for this quick & simple coleslaw to join the list of favorite side dishes in my house!
Some of our other favorites include:
- Pan Fried Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Dried Cranberries
- Creamy Potato Salad with Bacon & Chives
- Savory Turkey Rice
- Garlic & Parmesan Colcannon
All the diets.
If you’re doing a special diet like paleo, GAPS, whole30, etc., you can still enjoy this coleslaw. With the few ingredients that it contains, there’s not much to need to leave out. And it’s even vegan… though I don’t care much about that. 😉 So go ahead and mix up a batch and enjoy!
