Broccoli and cole slaw are not two of my husband’s favorite things. Ermmm, unlsee the broccoli is served with a lot of melted cheese on top.
when I came across a recipe for a marinated broccoli cole slaw, and served it to him, and he actually asked me to make it again…
One week later. Yeah, youbetcha I marked this recipe as a keeper!
It helps that it is wicked simple to toss together, now that most markets (around here, anyways) stock bagged shredded broccoli slaw in with the packaged salads in produce; just dice an onion, make the dressing, and you are good to go!
•16 oz pkg broccoli slaw
•1/2 sweet or red onion, diced
•3/4 cup sugar*
•1/2 cup cider vinegar
•1/4 cup water
•1 tsp mustard seed
•1 tsp celery seed
•1/2 tsp black pepper
•1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper
*Go ahead and try this as is, but I am gonna try cutting the sugar back to 1/2 cup next time. I’ve found that most salad dressing recipes tend to call for a lot more sugar than they really need.
Stir the dressing ingredients together in a ‘wave-safe bowl, then heat at full power for two minutes.
Remove from the ‘wave and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Pop back into the ‘wave for one minute, then remove and pour over the broccoli slaw mix and onion in a large bowl.
Toss to combine, then transfer to a smaller container, cover, and stash in the fridge for at least four hours (overnight is good, too).
Serve as you will.
Raw broccoli without the need for ranch dressing…
Who’d a thunk it?
