Collard Slaw - Coconut Contentment (Paleo)
This is my favorite meal.  Guacamole burger, white sweet potato fries, and collard slaw.  If I could eat this every night for the rest of my life…I would celebrate with the greatest thanksgiving EVERY SINGLE TIME.  I just love it.

And what makes this particular meal pictured above even better –  my husband made it! Man can make a mean burger.

It was so good that I forgot all of the stress of a whole work week in one bite.

What’s even more fun about this dish – the tasty collard slaw my husband invented!

It was so good I just had to snap a pic and share it with you all… 🙂

Collard Slaw, Coconut Contentment (Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

Collard Slaw

Prep: 20-25min           Yields: 4-6 servings


  • 1 bunch collard greens
  • 2 small to medium carrots
  • 3 slices cooked bacon, chopped


  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Remove the stems from the collards, carefully the slice the collards into 2-3in long strips
  2. Peel the carrots into ribbons using a vegetable peeler (or shred them) – the goal is to make them really thin
  3. Mix the dressing, add desired amount (enough to wet it well) – now roll up your sleeves and give that slaw a massage! Squish it real good to make it nice and tender
  4. Marinate in fridge until ready to serve – the longer the better! Right before serving top with bacon

Serves well with a variety of dishes – can even be used as the base for grilled chicken or steak.  Great way to get that calcium in, too!

Enjoy 🙂
