Maybe you've heard of egg roll in a bowl, a staple in the lchf (low carb high fat, aka keto) community. Likely, you've also heard it called by another name: crack slaw. Why do people call it crack slaw, you ask? Because it's suuuuper addictive. It's cheap to make, comes together in about 10 minutes, and it's filled with flavors everybody loves, not to mention good-for-you veggies. However, the recipes I was running to online weren't doing it for me…so I came up with my own. Glow Getters, allow me to introduce you to a REAL crack slaw.
