I remember eating coleslaw at cookouts growing up. It was always heavy with way too much mayo and not enough flavor. This Keto chicken coleslaw is worth giving coleslaw a second look.

Instead, the cabbage (a mix of red and white for color and crunch) is tossed with a light and tangy dressing made from Keto mayo and fruity white balsamic vinegar.

This creamy egg salad has a fabulous hidden secret – the spice! Whether you buy spicy guacamole or make your own, the spice can help lift the flavors and make the salad even more interesting. This dish can be served in a pepper as described here, or you can simply heap it onto salad leaves, but my favorite way to serve it is to cut cucumber in half lengthways and hollow it out a bit then pack the egg salad into the ‘boats’.

Ingredients: salmon filets, ghee, garlic, lemon juice, salt, lemon, asparagus, leek, ginger powder or fresh ginger, avocado oil or olive oil.

Just remember to drain all the water from the fish as this can make the cakes very crumbly. Serve these with green salad leaves and a wedge of lemon for a lovely filling lunch!
