Broccoli Slaw SaladHave you been throwing away your broccoli stems? I’ve discovered that those stems can be useful in creating a yummy Broccoli Slaw Salad.

It is simple to make and is suitable for the Keto or Vegan lifestyle (make use of a vegan mayonnaise for the latter).

Broccoli stems (stalks) are just as nutritional as the florets.  This salad can then mask the broccoli from those picky eaters who hate this vegetable.

I make the Broccoli slaw salad on those evenings when I do not feel like cooking elaborate meals.  Because it includes one or 2 other crunchy vegetables, it is balanced enough to be the main dish. Just serve with your favorite protein for the side (e.g grilled chicken, pork, fish, etc).

Tips when making a broccoli slaw salad

The Broccoli slaw salad can be ready in a matter of minutes, and you can serve it immediately while at room temperature. You will get better palatability though if you let it chill overnight, or a couple of hours so as to let the ingredients to blend together.

You can also make the salad as a filling for your wraps, and sandwiches.  It will work very well too as the main ingredient in pasta salads.

What will you need to make the Broccoli slaw salad recipe?

Nothing much.

A good grater will shred your Broccoli stalks well enough to prepare the salad.
