Fats of Life® is a blog I run as a hobby. I love spending time on it, but did you know that I am also the author of two best-selling cookbooks? KETO KITCHEN (2020) and LAZY KETO KITCHEN (2021) – both available worldwide and very well-priced. I have a third book on the way: BUDGET KETO KITCHEN, (coming mid-2022).
Perhaps its time to start building up your Keto Kitchen collection if you have not already done so. Not only will my books make beautiful Christmas stocking fillers for loved ones interested in a low carb lifestyle, but you could simply treat YOURSELF! Your family (whether they live keto or not) will not be disappointed with all your exciting, delicious creations!

Hot Pink Cabbage Slaw

A simple cabbage salad using a handful of ingredients - this salad is as delicious to tuck into as it is pretty to look at!
Course Salad, Side Dish
Cuisine General
Prep Time 15 minutes
Marinating Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 4 as a side salad

Per serving

Calories: 141kcal | Carbohydrates: 2.7g | Protein: 0.9g | Fat: 14g


  • 250 g (8.8 oz) red cabbage, sliced very thinly
  • salt
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) red wine vinegar
  • 70 g (2.5 oz) mayonnaise
  • sea salt flakes
  • chopped herbs of your choice, (optional)


  • Use a sharp knife to slice your cabbage as thinly as possible.
  • Place into a large bowl and season with a little salt. Pour over the red wine vinegar and toss well to evenly coat. Leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. (Stirring it every now and then helps to ensure the cabbage is evenly 'marinating' in the acidic vinegar.)
  • After 30 minutes, drain the cabbage in a colander to remove any excess vinegar.
  • Tip the drained cabbage into a bowl and stir through the mayonnaise. Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning with salt flakes.
  • Serve with some herbs or salad leaves if you want to (this is optional and not included in the macros).
