Recipe: Broccoli Cole Slaw

On Sunday I made a nice lunch for us that included roasted garlic mashed potatoes and pork chops, but the real star of the show was my broccoli cole slaw. I started adding a bunch of vegetables and different ingredients together - et voila - a masterpiece was born. As my magnanimousness is never ending I am sharing this recipe with you here today.

Broccoli Cole Slaw


1 head raw broccoli finely sliced and cut to the same size as the other ingredients (I use the stem and everything - just be sure to slice first, then soak for 30m in vinager water and strain for another 30m)
1 cup finely shredded cabbage
1 small finely julienned carrot
2 seeded and finely julienned chillis
1 large celery stick finely julienned
1 apple finely julienned
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 lime (to squeeze over the apples so they don't brown)

1/2 cup light mayo
2/3 cup light cream or yogurt (I would maybe do half and half, but don't substitute the mayo)
1 tbs ginger grated and squeezed - use only the juice (or powdered ginger)
1 large tbs dijon mustard

How To:

Veggies: toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl

Dressing: whisk everything together and mix into the veggies with a fork (you can make more dressing if you want, it's up to you.)

You're welcome!
