Convenience is a critical part of any meal plan. If I can replicate it or make it in a brisk amount of time, I will try. I think that is the reason Broccoli Slaw was invented. It was created by busy people that wanted to eat well on a budget with the opportunity to bust out of their perfunctory meal plans without much fuss. I really like that. Brocco Slaw is cheap, readily available, comes packaged pre-washed and usually found near the bagged salads. It is waiting to become a crunchy sandwich topper or a Suddenly Salad of your choice. Just throw a bunch of things on it and see how it goes. This is what I did with our last bag. It was effortless, flavorful and colorful. I used ingredients I had in the pantry, so if you want to switch it up based on your pantry, please do and let me now how it turned out.
By: S. Duquet
1 12 oz bag Broccoli Slaw
Dried fruit of your choice (I used dried cherries)
2/3 C raw sunflower seeds
1 Tbsp unrefined coconut oil
Juice of 4 limes
2 Tbsp of brown rice syrup (could use agave or other pourable sweetener of choice)
Make it Happen
~Whisk coconut oil and brown rice syrup into lime juice and mix well.
~In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients and toss with dressing. Serve immediaely.
This salad is a fast and exciting side to any entree. Also, the only solution for when you find yourself suddenly ravenous. Open the bag, dress and eat. If you would prefer an oil free version, leave out the oil. The lime juice and brown rice syrup are absolutely delish without it.
Do you have a fave Broco Slaw concoction? Please share.
