Broccoli slaw is one of the latest “health” trends 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 other turn it into an interesting and high-fiber salad.
- 1 bag of broccoli slaw (you can find this in your produce section)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 8 slices bacon, cooked crisp
- Optional: 1/2 C chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, pistachios) and/or 3/4 C dried cranberries
- Optional: 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
