Broccoli slaw with Greek yogurt is one of my favorite sides for summer. It’s not only a quick summer salad, it tastes better the next day (so preparing in advance is a plus). Boasting all of the health benefits of broccoli, this slaw is high in antioxidants ( vitamins A and C) and contains fiber. You also eat this raw which I think is an added health benefit.
This is a great alternative to regular cabbage slaw. I purchase a 12 oz bag in the produce section of the market. The eat smart brand that I like already contains shredded carrots and red cabbage. I don’t know if i mentioned this before, but I really do not like mayonnaise! Whenever I can substitute Greek yogurt I do. I try to keep my slaw dressing simple and sugar free. I add some Craisins to the broccoli slaw to give a little tangy sweetness. You could also substitute agave syrup for sugar.
The preparation was straight forward, make the dressing first, then add it to the slaw, mix it all together until it is well coated. Cover and then refrigerate over night. I modified the dressing recipe I found on my package for a traditional slaw salad. I liked the “eat smart” brand. Check out the Eat Smart website to find out where it is sold and some other great recipe ideas.
We sometimes enjoy our broccoli slaw with Chili Cheese Dogs, I like the balance of the textures and the combination of the spiciness in the chili with the creaminess of the slaw.
