‘Broccoli Slaw’ is my new discovery at a Coles supermarket. It was packed with creamy dressing and $5 for about 2 servings. I like it a lot, but the list of ingredients freaked me out, and also it is pricey! Coleslaw can be prepared easily and cheaply at home. You don’t need to buy the Broccoli Slaw Mix. And this Creamy Dressing is quite tasty. Why don’t you try it?
1 Broccoli *select one with longer and thicker stalk
1-2 Red Cabbage Leaves
Nuts or Seeds for topping
4 tablespoons Japanese Mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Greek Style Yoghurt
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Sugar
2 teaspoons Rice Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
The stalks (stems) of the Broccoli are the main ingredient. I recommend to cut off the dark green parts, using a small knife, into very small florets. Remove the very wooden parts of the thick stalk. Then slice into thin strips. Using a vegetable slicer is the easiest way.
Slice Carrot and Red Cabbage Leaves into thin strips as well.
In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients to make Creamy Dressing, then combine with vegetables. Sprinkle with Nuts or Seeds for your choice. This time, I used Pumpkin Seeds. Serve immediately or allow to rest for 1/2 hour before serve.
