This Broccoli slaw is a delicious combination of crunchy broccoli and carrot ribbons, thin onions, sweet chewy dried cranberries and pecans. It’s then tossed with a light tangy dressing. You’re going to love all of the different textures in this salad!
Broccoli Slaw as a side dish is a welcome change to some of the less-than-stellar coleslaws with heavy mayo and cabbage.
I’ve found a great many slaw recipes I like (like this Sweet and Spicy Apple Coleslaw that’s loved by even the coleslaw-averse members of my family) but there’s something extra wonderful about a good broccoli slaw. Even after mixing the dressing with the crisp carrots and broccoli, they retain their crunch.
Broccoli Slaw salad
I love salads with lots of texture and flavor. Broccoli Slaw follows the same pattern! This version has dried cranberries and pecans for an extra layer of fruity-nutty goodness.
The red onions are sliced finely to add a little spice and color. Slice the red onions as thinly and evenly as possible for the best texture and flavor balance in your broccoli salad.
