Trader Joe’s ORGANIC BROCCOLI SLAW


This package can make a really really good coleslaw. We really liked the slaw made with this, a variation from a regular salw made from cabbage. To make the slaw, I basically used the recipe on the package with one difference. I used way less than the “one cup” of your favorite salad dressing as they suggest. You don’t need that much; if you need more sauce just add a little vinegar and a little honey or palm sugar. Yes it does say “organic shredded broccoli stalk”. I promise you won’t even know, the finished slaw will soften up and be like any regular coleslaw after it marinates for awhile (20-30 minutes). Personally I never throw out the stalk when I make broccoli, I peel and cook it – but when I met my wife, she just chopped of the head and threw out the rest!

(here’s my modified recipe) COLESLAW : Dump the package in a bowl. Add one grated apple (grate on box grater with skin), add a handful of dried cranberries or golden raisins, add about an ounce or two of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and add just enough of your favorite dressing to lightly coat things (maybe a 1/4 to 1/3 of cup? The package says 1 whole cup of dressing – come on, that’s way too much. I used TJ’s Organic Ranch Dressing. Or you can just add some mayo. A sprinkle of DILL SEASONING will be nice in this. Mix everything up and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes in the fridge to marinate. It will soften up. The slaw can easily stay in the fridge for the next day. This is a very tasty and healthy side dish!

And you can cook this too. Just sauté these veggies for about 3 minutes in a butter or olive oil if you prefer a cooked dish.
