How To Make Crunchy Broccoli Slaw

How To Make Crunchy Broccoli Slaw

Here’s a Recipe for Fast and Simple Crunchy Broccoli Slaw.
This super quick recipe is perfect for those times you want a light and tasty side dish or sandwich filling without a lot of work  Just toss the ingredients into a large bowl and give it a quick stir to combine ~ and viola! You have a satisfying side dish or a crunchy filling for sandwiches or lettuce wraps.

Chefs Tip: You can serve this recipe immediately at room temperature. However, for best results, cover and place in the refrigerator for a couple hours (or overnight) to give the flavors a chance to meld into one great taste treat.

I really like this for a couple of reasons. A. You control the ingredients. What your food is made up of is more important than every before because the governments are not protecting us from companies that spray Roundup ready poisons on our food crops. B. When was that premade slaw actually made. There is no real way of telling,, it could be fresh or it could be weeks old. If you are buying it ready made it probably came in gallon containers from some big factory that made it months ago and has chemicals in it to retain a “fresh flavor and taste”. It is then repackaged and sold as fresh. No Thank You, I will take a couple of minutes and make my own Crunchy Broccoli Slaw to serve to family and friends.

There are so many benefits to spending a little time in the kitchen and making fresh foods for ourselves and those that we love. Think about the food we eat as the fuel that gives us the energy to do all the things we love to do as well as a few that we are not so fond of and more importantly it supplies our brains with the Nutrition that it needs.

 This Crunchy Broccoli Slaw goes well on the Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps. You can find that recipe Here

  • Your idea about shredding the vegetables will work fine but it takes a little more time. Here is a second idea, when one of the boys are coming home for a visit from the big city have them stop in Costco and look in the cold food locker. The one Costco sells included shredded Brussels Sprouts which I like. The Costco here in Puerto Vallarta carries it most of the time. When they don’t have it they will have a regular cole slaw mix so all I have to do is add the broccoli and I’m good to go. Also, when he visits Costco have him grab you a bag of organic raw cauliflower that is already cut for making cauliflower rice or mashed. Saves a lot of time and work but you need to use it within a few days when you get it home so plan a meal that includes it. Watch for recipes on my blog that has it as part of the main dish.

  • The apple does sound good for both added flavor and crunch but I get the broccoli slaw mix at Costco and that makes this a simple one to add to any picnic or meal like chicken etc. If you have a Costco near you check out the cold food locker, sometimes you will find it there and it includes shredded Brussels sprouts in the mix which for me is a plus.

  • Well, I’ve never see a broccoli slaw sold in stores. But, I do see conventional slaw- to which I add sliced apple- and a concoction similar to the rest of your ingredients. (Making the apple matchsticks takes time- a lot of it- so your simple “make” would be a welcome change.)

  • Hey, Chef! This looks FABULOUS and just fits the bill for my meal-planning this week. I have been craving fresh, crunchy veg! QUESTION: If I don’t buy the organic broccoli slaw in the bag (I’m not sure our little store carries it), but prefer to cut up my own: what do you suggest? Shredded cabbage + broccoli + carrots?? Or something. . . ? Thanks, Chef!
