A More Nutritious Slaw with a Slightly Spicier Flavor
What is it?
Broccoli Slaw is a cole slaw made with broccoli instead of cabbage. Broccoli and cabbage are actually very close relatives so the flavor is very similar.

The difference? A more nutritious slaw with a slightly spicier flavor, and an added bonus….. Broccoli is less prone to producing flatulence than cabbage.
Slaw dishes can be traced all the way back to the 3rd century in Eastern Europe using shredded cabbage and other ingredients like onions and carrots.
Modern coleslaw is traditionally made with a mayonnaise based sauce but broccoli slaw is more popular with vinaigrette dressings and Asian style dressing including rice vinegar.

HOW TO PICK: Pick a bag of broccoli slaw where it’s matchstick pieces are firm and light green in color.

HOW TO STORE: They should stay fresh in their breathable bag typically for up to 10 days – keep it in your crisper drawer.

HOW TO COOK/ ENJOY: Broccoli slaw is typically used as a side dish, especially with fried foods. It should be chilled before serving. It compliments well on your favorite sandwich, wrap or flat bread and adds a tasty crunch to tacos and it’s a no-brainer to add into stir fry dishes. Healthy benefits? Same as raw broccoli, a bounty of Vitamin A and C, plus a heavy content of fiber. Try this great Thai Turkey Burger with Broccoli Slaw Recipe
