Have you been throwing away your broccoli stems? I’ve discovered that those stems can be useful in creating a yummy Broccoli Slaw Salad.
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?
A good grater will shred your Broccoli stalks well enough to prepare the salad.
Broccoli slaw salad with cranberries
Most people do love the broccoli slaw salad better with cranberries. There is nothing to it, really. Simply toss a handful or so of cranberries to your completed recipe (above) and enjoy!
Broccoli slaw pasta salad
Cook your preferred pasta according to the instructions on the package (a cup should be enough). Be careful not to overcook it, or else it will be one mushy mess when making the salad. Once your pasta cools down completely, mix it with the broccoli slaw salad (above) and serve.
