Broccoli Slaw Salad

Broccoli slaw is one of the latest “health” tends to be added to the salad aisle of your grocery store. Basically, it is the stems of broccoli — that part no one really wants to eat — julienned or shredded into more easily consumable pieces. Often, the broccoli is mixed in with shredded carrots, as well. Some people like to saute broccoli slaw, while others turn it into an interesting and high-fiber salad.
