We have finally had sunshine and blue skies here in my little corner of the PNW! The bees are buzzin’ and my craving for BBQ food is in high gear!

You have to understand that when the temps are above 70, and the sun is out, we pretty much live outdoors.

It is a Washington thing, we just want (and need) to soak up as much of that vitamin D goodness as possible so we can store it away for the literal rainy days.

And, when we are outside, it means we put our grill to work double time with things like Buffalo Chicken Burgers and Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Jalapeno Chimichurri, and any and all things that can be grilled or smoked.

One of my favorite BBQ/picnic sides is coleslaw. I have loved it since I was a kid, and don’t even get me started on the several-year addiction I had to the Colonel’s version UGH!! I think I ate it by the gallon! 

But, now that my palate is a teensy bit older *koff koff*, as is my rear end, I decided I wanted to update my fave. So I pulled out the ol’ thinking cap and got to work.

OK, so part of it was a no-brainer for me. I sub keto-friendly mayo for regular mayo and Besti Monk Fruit and Allulose sweetener for sugar.


Now, what to do to make a bit more zippity do dah.

KFC’s has a TON of sugar (hence the yummy numminess right) so if we take the flavor out, we gotta put flavor in.

I don’t know about y’all, but two of my favorite meals to mow down some coleslaw with are fried chicken (low-carb fried chicken recipe coming soon) and pulled pork.

I got to thinking, what goes with both of those things?


If you have never had dill pickles on a fried chicken sandwich you have got to try it ASAP.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and toss until the cabbage is well coated.

It doesn’t get much easier than that!

What is the serving size of Dill Pickle Coleslaw?
I know many people are wondering how this serves 12 but a serving of coleslaw is 3 ounces or about 1/3 cup. The calories and carbs are so low you can have more if you want but I stuck to the guidelines for the nutritional info.
Does Dill Pickle Coleslaw have to be refrigerated?
Yes, this recipe contains mayo so it shouldn’t be left out for more than 2 hours.
How long will Dill Pickle Coleslaw last in the refrigerator?
If stored in an airtight container it should last for up to 5 days.

Last thoughts about Dill Pickle Coleslaw


The first thing we tried this on was my Big Pig Burgers (I ate mine minus the bun and made quite the mess).

OhhhEmmmGeee people! It was heaven!

And you know what?

Yup, you guessed it. Kevin, who has told me on numerous occasions that he is NOT a pickle fan (He always pulls them off his burgers), L O V E D it! 


And of course, I wanted to eat the whole bowl! But, since the kids were here for dinner, I refrained from doing so.

I just made another batch the next day and proceeded to go to town!
