I don't see why not; you aren't cooking it.

Munky I use truvia, I like the flavor better than sweet n low, or splenda... Anywho 1 packet is equivalent to 2 tsps of sugar...

I'd google it, but I can tell you I would use less. That stuff and I don't care what kind of sweetner it is, all are way sweeter than regular sugar. So I'd say taste and then add if more if needed.

Here's a low carb cole slaw recipe I make for SO and me. She's following a low carb regimen. The recipe uses Equal in place of sugar. It's good enough that I'll eat it and I'm not a fan of artificial sweeteners.


LOW-CARB COLE SLAW

1 Lb Cole Slaw Mix, bagged
˝ C Mayonnaise
˝ C Sour Cream
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tsp Prepared Mustard
˝ tsp Salt
1 pkt Equal
˝ tsp Celery Seeds

Place the slaw mix in a 2-quart bowl.

Separately combine the remaining ingredients and add the mixture to the cole slaw mix.

Toss to combine and refrigerate for a couple of hours to overnight to allow flavors to blend.

Serve cold.

I think you can just drop the sugar part all together.

Andy, I used your recipe. Nice sauce! Can't wait to have some tomorrow with some smoked chicken.

Thank you everyone for the input. It's most appreciated :)
