Question Low Carb Cole Slaw

I am looking for some help please. I usually make a version of low-carb coleslaw. What I'm trying to figure out is, how many servings, how much makes a serving, how many net carbs are in that single serving.


http://www.food.com/recipe/best-low-carb-coleslaw-83205

This is the recipe I use. It says this recipe makes 6 servings.

Serving size = 87 g

13.7g carbs - 2g fiber dietary fiber = 11.7g net carbs

So, for 1/4 cup of this particular coleslaw is 11.7 carbs?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Kelly

If 87g is 1/4 cup, then yes.



Here's my recipe:


1 Green Cabbage
2 carrots shredded
1/4 cup White Vinegar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 and 1/4 cup mayo
sweetener to taste
pepper to taste

I never add onions, but that sounds realllllly good! I might do that next time.

I can't help you with carb count in cup servings, as I measure all my things in grams since I have a food scale. I just dump and measure. It saves time as I cook for 7 people. All I know is that 100g of mine is:
149 cal, 5g carbs, 2g fiber

I don't understand the big carb difference between these two recipes. I want to eat the one with 3 net carbs. LOL I know that onion adds more carbs than one would think, but the second recipe has carrots instead, and they add carbs, too. Puzzled!!

100g of cabbage is only about 3 net carbs. A medium carrot is about 4. This is according to the site fatsecret which I have used for years. It takes data from the USDA and is super easy to use. I'd just enter all the amounts and see for yourself.

The first recipe uses Splenda, which is basically 8 carbs per 1/3 cup due to the powder it is mixed with and the cream is 3 or 4 per half cup. Neither of those have fiber to subtract.
So that's what makes it much more up there. I use zero carb liquid sweetener and the mayo has no carbs. And yes the onions do add a little. They are almost 3 net carbs per quarter cup.

I have never put any sweetener in my cole slaw. I don't think my mother did, and I just followed what she did. My family likes my cole slaw so I guess I won't change what I'm doing.

That's one reason I can never have cole slaw when
we eat out.

I always laugh to DH and call it sugar slaw. Some of those recipes use 1/2 a cup of sugar in the mix.

There are the mayo slaws and the German pickled type and they're both good if made at home.

I also love the idea of adding the celery seed. It just adds that "Je Ne Sais Quis"

I always use celery seed when I make marinated cucumbers and also Dill Weed. -also use both in my chicken salads.

Both of those recipes above sound great!

Last night we ate at Bob Evans and DH's meal came with cole slaw. He tasted it and said it didn't taste right. I tasted it and said that's because they put a ton of sugar in it. He didn't eat it. He's used to the way I make it without sweetener. Also, theirs is soupy. I don't like it soupy. I just like enough mayo and vinegar to moisten the cabbage.

All of these recipes sound good, but I would just omit the sweetener.
