Creamy Broccoli Slaw

My family loves broccoli slaw!  This is one of those recipes that I’m always asked to make.  And, I really don’t mind at all! I came up with this idea after visiting with some family.  My cousin brought a broccoli slaw made at a local deli and it was fantastic!  So, I took my regular coleslaw recipe and swapped out the cabbage for broccoli and….viola!  Broccoli slaw!

I love this recipe for two reasons…1.)  it’s an easy way for me to get my son to eat more raw veggies (and broccoli to boot!) and 2.)  this recipe uses the stems of the broccoli…a part that we don’t normally eat.

Is It a Keeper?

This recipe always gets rave reviews!  And, it’s so easy to make when you enlist the help of your food processor.  I use the grating disc to quickly grate the broccoli, carrots, and onions.  Seriously, it takes me more time to clean everything up than it does to grate the veggies.  Seriously!  Or, if you’re really short on time, you can always buy the bagged broccoli slaw mix.

I look for the broccoli with the longest stems when I’m making this recipe.  I trim off the very ends of the stalks and clean off any leaves. The rest gets a whirl in the ole Cuisinart!

This is a great twist on the classic coleslaw.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    • Of course! The horseradish just adds a nice little kick. It would still be a great dish if you omitted it. Good luck! 🙂

  2. SUCH a great way to use the broccoli stalk! Even though I know it feeds the compost pile, I hate throwing out such a big part of a healthy food. Thanks for the great recipe!
