I would like to say that I came up with this brilliant, yet super easy Broccoli Slaw recipe, but I cannot. I originally stumbled across this Broccoli Slaw on Pinterest. Yes, I actually made something from a Pinterest post!!! This is quite a feat because out of my thousands of pins, I have attempted very few. It is from Self Magazine Online (click here for the original recipe).
This salad has become a favorite in my house. We make it with dinners and it is also an easy salad to bring to a barbecue or get-together. The dressing has an oil and vinegar base so it is great for hot days and outdoor gatherings where it is hard to find refrigeration. After making it for the first time, Brandon and I found the dressing to be too oily so I made some adjustments from the original. Here is my version…
Gather all of the ingredients…
Toast the sesame seeds and mix all of the ingredients for the dressing.
Add the green onions and dressing to the broccoli slaw. Mix until the dressing is evenly distributed.
Add the remaining ingredients, toss, and you are ready to serve.
If you are bringing this recipe somewhere, I recommend mixing everything right before it is going to be served. I just bring the broccoli and green onions in a bowl, put all of the seeds and cranberries in a bag, and mix the dressing in a separate container.
