Tips and Substitutions
Delicious, low carb keto broccoli makes a great slaw! Buy the broccoli 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.
What's In It?
Keto Broccoli Slaw has the freshest ingredients for enhanced flavor!
Bag organic broccoli slaw - It's just so easy and convenient to use store-bought slaw mix since it's already shredded and has just the right amount of carrots mixed in.
Fresh parsley leaves - not necessary to use but dresses it up a little for a special occasion.
Avocado oil mayo - Creamy avocado oil mayo combined with a hint of apple cider vinegar makes it the best dressing for broccoli slaw. We love it!
Apple cider vinegar - gives the slaw a little zippy twang!
Whole celery seed - you may be surprised at just how much flavor these little seeds pack! They're not just for pickling or slaw; they're also a great addition to chicken and seafood.
