Broccoli Slaw

about the recipe

This Broccoli Slaw Salad recipe is one of my favorite sides to serve for summer entertaining. (Though it works well year around.) Crunchy broccoli and almonds, sweet cranberries, and a touch of punchy red onion are dressed in a sweet heat dressing. It provides just the right balance for grilled meats. Making slaw from broccoli stems is a great way to use all of the vegetable, but if you are pressed for time, you can pick up a bag of coleslaw or broccoli slaw mix at the grocery store.
