Homemade Mayonnaise Makes For a Delicious Paleo-Friendly Dressing
Mayonnaise is used in so many people’s favorite dishes that it can be extremely distressing having to give it up when switching over to a paleo lifestyle. Fortunately, there are plenty of paleo mayonnaise recipes online, including this herbed one. Simply omit the oregano and rosemary from the recipe if you want plain mayonnaise.
Cucumber and Fresh Dill Add Some Bite To This Coleslaw
Cucumbers are one of my favorite greens to use in smoothies, salads, and many other types of paleo recipes. They are extremely low in calories but hold a lot of water in them, which means they are good for satiety and volume. They also contain potent phytochemicals and antioxidants that have been shown to have many therapeutic health effects in humans. (1) They help your body naturally detox, provide plenty of vitamins and minerals, and even have many great benefits for keeping your skin looking young and healthy. Most importantly, they make for tasty additions to any cole slaw recipe including this one.
Fresh dill is another great paleo ingredient that can be used in many different recipes. And just like cucumbers, they add a great taste to this coleslaw while providing you with many great health benefits. Dill has been studied extensively along with several other types of herbs and spices due to their potential to prevent and treat cancer. (2) Fresh dill is commonly found in sauces, vinegars, soups and breads. It pairs well with vegetables, meat and seafood.
Once you try out this cucumber cabbage cole slaw for yourself, you’ll see exactly what I mean when I say that coleslaw doesn’t have to just be another boring side dish.
