Asian Broccoli Slaw

29 May

Move over coleslaw — here comes the brighter, better and more nutritious broccoli slaw. I love this combination of broccoli, carrots and red cabbage so much, I can eat it raw right out of the bag. It’s found in the bagged salad section of most supermarkets and, of course, good old reliable Trader Joe’s carries it.

This Asian Slaw recipe is delicious because it’s rich in umami flavors and is refreshing and light. It doesn’t hurt that it takes all of about 5 minutes to make. It can be eaten right away but it’s better if you refrigerate it for a few hours before serving so the flavors can meld.
