This is our favorite time of the year. Holidays are fast approaching and that means more gatherings and of course, more eating. Hello, broccoli slaw! This quick and easy recipe is perfect for those meals when you want a light and tasty side dish without extra time in the kitchen. Just toss the ingredients into a large bowl, stir, and serve!
Tips and Substitutions
Delicious, nutritious broccoli makes a great slaw! Buy it already shredded and save yourself some time. As I said earlier, you can serve this slaw right away, but I find the flavor is best when it can sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or even overnight.
Alternative to Bagged Slaw
If you want to shred your own broccoli stalks instead of buying pre-made broccoli slaw, then simply julienne 4-5 broccoli stalks or shred them with a box grater. If desired, julienne or shred a couple of carrots, as well.
- Bag organic broccoli slaw
- Fresh parsley leaves
- Avocado oil mayo
- Apple cider vinegar
- Whole celery seed
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Add all ingredients to a large glass bowl or casserole dish. Toss to combine. Enjoy right away or if you have the time, cover and let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Make this Low Carb?
This recipe is already low carb! Only 3.6 net carbs per serving! Lower the carbs even more by using broccoli slaw without the shredded carrots.
What Goes with Coleslaw
Coleslaw goes great with pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers, and grilled chicken.
Why Avocado Oil?
Creamy avocado oil mayo combined with a hint of apple cider vinegar makes it the best dressing for broccoli slaw. We love it! But you may ask, "Why Use Avocado Oil Mayo"? We like using avocado oil mayonnaise because it's a great healthy fat, rich in oleic acid (a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid). We like Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo. And, if you're watching carbs, the net carb count of avocado mayo is super low. Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo has 0 net carbs per serving (always check the nutrition label) and great for keto and paleo diets. But if you prefer to use regular mayo, then use it, honey!
