  • 30 g (1 oz) red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1.5 TB white wine vinegar
  • 150 g (5.3 oz) Savoy cabbage (soft, inner leaves), thinly sliced

  • Start with the onions, chop them very small and place into a bowl with the white wine vinegar. Set aside to lightly pickle while you slice the cabbage and chop the parsley.
  • Place the shredded cabbage and parsley into a large bowl.
  • In a bowl, combine the Keto Mayonnaise and sour cream. Add the onions - along with the vinegar. Season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well to combine.
  • Pour the sauce over the cabbage and toss well to evenly coat the cabbage. Garnish with a little extra parsley if you are feeling fancy like I was.
