Crunchy and Filling Broccoli Slaw

Pinterest Hidden Image

In the realm of healthy eating, salads reign supreme. However, not all salads need to be leafy and green. Some, like this Broccoli Slaw recipe, are crunchy and vibrant, offering a refreshing change of pace from typical salad fare.

The Charm of Broccoli Slaw

Unlike traditional slaws that often use shredded cabbage as the base, this recipe calls for broccoli slaw mix, a combination of shredded broccoli stems, carrots, and purple cabbage. The result is a salad that’s packed with nutrients, including fiber, vitamins A and C, and potassium.



To make this refreshing salad, you’ll need a package of broccoli slaw mix, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, a sweetener of your choice, celery seeds, and salt and pepper. The dressing, a tangy blend of mayonnaise, vinegar, sweetener, and celery seeds, perfectly complements the crunchiness of the slaw.

  • 1 12 oz. bag organic broccoli slaw
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley leaves chopped
  • 2 T. avocado oil mayo
  • 1 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 t. whole celery seed
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

The Process

Making this salad couldn’t be simpler. Start by whisking together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sweetener, celery seeds, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. This creates a creamy, tangy dressing that brings the whole dish together.

Next, add the broccoli slaw mix to the bowl and toss everything together until the slaw is well coated in the dressing. For the best flavor, let the slaw sit in the fridge for an hour or two before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together and the slaw to soak up the dressing.


The Verdict

The Broccoli Slaw recipe is a delightful twist on traditional slaw. It’s crunchy, tangy, and bursting with fresh flavors. Plus, it’s versatile — you can enjoy it on its own as a light lunch, or serve it as a side dish with grilled chicken or fish. So why not give this recipe a try? You just might find it becomes a regular in your salad rotation.
