Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Slaw

Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Slaw - get the recipe at barefeetinthekitchen.com
Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Slaw is filled with crunchy ribbons of broccoli and carrots, paper-thin onions, sweet chewy cranberries, and pecans. The salad is tossed with just enough light, tangy dressing to blend the flavors without making this a "saucy" slaw. I love all of the different textures in this salad.

COOK'S NOTE: Every so often, I find bags of grated broccoli stalk in the grocery store and I always buy them. If you can find them, grab them for sure! Otherwise, I look for the longest broccoli stalks in the grocery store. You'll need 2 large stalks worth of grated broccoli for this salad.

Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Slaw

12 ounces broccoli stalk, grated, or sliced very thinly into 2-3" matchsticks, about 5 cups worth
1 large carrot grated, or sliced very thinly into 2" matchsticks

3/4 cup sweet dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Dressing Ingredients:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar

Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the salad ingredients and stir well to coat. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Enjoy!

  1. The first time that I heard about broccoli slaw, I thought the person was insane. Then I tried it and I was very surprised at how good it was.

  2. I make my slaw like this all the time only I used apple cider vinegar with the mayo for the dressing and instead of sugar use granulated Splenda to make it lower in carbs. I change it up sometimes and add grated cheddar cheese or pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, but I never thought of dried cranberries, pecans and onions! Yummo...will be trying this version of yours right away.

  3. This looks so yummy! Pinning.
