Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli-Slaw

My friend Nancy recently made a broccoli slaw for our monthly card game.  I enjoyed it and decided to pick up package of broccoli slaw at the store.  I’ve realized recently that I don’t post vegetable recipes very often.  The truth is, the way I prepare and serve vegetables is usually so simple that I don’t think to write it down as a recipe.

We all need new vegetable ideas sometimes, though.  I don’t usually buy pre-cut fruit or vegetables such as broccoli slaw, but it’s nice to take short cuts once in a while.  I could make my own, but I know I won’t.

This broccoli slaw is a great recipe for Memorial Day coming up next week, but it’s also perfect for any day.  With warm weather here, it’s nice to serve a cold vegetable with dinner that is something other than a typical salad.  My picky eater (who is particularly particular about veggies) loved the broccoli slaw, so I’m sure I’ll be making more of it.

Many recipes use vinegar, but my family simply doesn’t care for vinegar in very many recipes.  I decided it was safer to go with lemon juice, and I’m so glad I did.  I love the flavor that the fresh juice and zest add to this dish.

  1. Coleslaw is one of my favorite side dishes but so many people make it with mayo! Have you tried making it with broccoli by hand or only using mix? I wonder if it would be worth the effort.

  2. That look great and super easy. Going to have to try it soon!

  3. Oh, this broccoli slaw sounds delicious! Lemon, olive oil, and parsley together sounds so refreshing. Linda, I’d love to invite you to share this at Raw Foods Thursdays tomorrow. It’s a perfectly rawlicious recipe! :)

  4. This sounds great! I haven’t made broccoli slaw in ages and I totally agree with you about the vinegar – more than a little and it is to overwhelming for me. Your lemon juice substitution sounds better. Pinning this!

  5. I love broccoli slaw! Will have to pick up a bag at the store. I don’t think peeling and grating stalks would be worth the effort but I would be interested in knowing if anyone has tried it.

  6. Oooh. This looks great. I’m going to share it with my Paleo AIP facebook group. It’s so rare (and delightful) to find recipes that fit the AIP (autoimmune protocol). Thanks!
