Broccoli Slaw Recipes

Broccoli slaw recipes are usually made with the stalks only but I prefer to use the tops as well. 

You can use a food processor, mandolin slicer, cheese grater, or a knife to finely shred, slice or julienne the whole broccoli.

I use a mandolin slicer with the julienne attachment.  There is usually a thick piece left over but I just cut it up and throw it into the mix.

I use the same attachment with the carrot and red onion.

There are many optional ingredients for this salad such as  nuts, raisins, dried fruit, etc.

To make it simple I just added some raw trail mix to the salad, giving it some extra crunch and flavour.

Broccoli slaw made with trail mix


2 average sized broccoli heads with stems attached
1-2 carrots
1/4 cup red onion 
1.5 cups trail mix


1/2 cup mayonnaise
2-3 tbsp. sushi vinegar
1 tbsp. mustard
1 tsp.salt
1 tsp.Pepper
1 tsp. sugar(optional)

Take the broccoli and peel a thin layer from the stalk section. Disgard peelings. Peel the carrots and onion as well.

Shred the brocolli/carrot/onion into thin pieces using whatever method you have available. You can use a food processor, mandoline slicer, cheese grater or a knife. Whatever you use cut the veggies quite thin.

Put salad into a large bowl, add dressing and mix well. The dressing will seem to be a bit "dry" but the salad will produce liquid as it sits. Let it sit for a couple of hours or overnight, mix again and serve.
