Broccoli Slaw

Submitted by: SHISHYCAT
Broccoli Slaw

Introduction

A delicious take on cole slaw without the mayo from a friend of mine. Contains almonds and sunflower seeds. I brought it to a party recently and people were saying how good it was, not realizing I had made it. That's pretty high praise! You can cut this recipe in half, too. (you could also try Splenda, although I haven't done that yet). A delicious take on cole slaw without the mayo from a friend of mine. Contains almonds and sunflower seeds.

Ingredients

    2 packages of broccoli slaw (12 ounces each, usually). (Broccoli slaw looks like cole slaw - it's not florets and it's not chopped. It's small strips, with a bit of carrot and red cabbage in it. Found by the bagged lettuce at the grocery store).
    1 cup sunflower seeds
    1 cup toasted slivered almonds
    1 bunch scallions, chopped
    1 cup craisins
    1 large red pepper, chopped

    Dressing:
    3/4 cup of canola oil
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup cider vinegar

Directions

Prepare the dressing first to allow sugar to dissolve while assembling the rest of the ingredients. Add the dressing and toss thoroughly.

Serves 25 as a side dish. You can also cut the recipe in half.

Number of Servings: 25

    Also had this prepared by the poster. Two days later I had a sample of Broccoli Slaw at Trader Joe's (yes, you can buy the slaw in bags there, as well as most grocery stores - in the produce section). This recipe was far nicer than the TJs recipe. - 7/3/09

  • Wow! Delicious. 1/4 cup canola oil is more than enough, and balsamic vinegar is also yummy. This is a great summer side for a cook out. Have it with Cuban lime grilled chicken. Thanks for sharing the fantastic recipe! - 6/4/12

  • To make it 'lite', I cut the oil to 1/2 cup & changed out the sugar for Splenda - works great! Everybody loves it! White vinegar works, too. Also, Craisins, peppers, nuts, etc. are optional. You can add whatever you want. I like to make it a meal & add bacon bits! YUM!! 25 servings? NO WAY!! - 9/14/11

    My only critique is that ok, it makes 25 servings, but what size are those servings? After making it, I wasn't going to portion out that many mini servings - 6/7/11

  • First2B -- It is not the florets. The slaw is made of shredded broccoli stalks. Someone was smart to think of a use for them since so much broccoli is now sold without the long stems. - 7/11/09
