I’ve been making Asian-Inspired Broccoli Slaw for, well… almost forever. It is based a recipe from a registered dietitian co-worker of my sister. Not surprisingly, dietitians are a good source of healthy practical recipes!
In my corporate years, this recipe was a godsend, as I tried to feed my kids healthy natural food, while working (more than) full time. Yes, this healthy side is loved by both kids and adults AND it comes together quickly!
But even now, with more time devoted to cooking, it is still a favorite. While Asian-Inspired Broccoli Slaw relies more on packaged products that many foods I make, it is so worth it.
How to Make Asian-Inspired Broccoli Slaw
Asian-Inspired Broccoli Slaw Tips and Serving Suggestions.
Broccoli Slaw is a great side for so many recipes! It is perfect with any type of sandwich or burger and always a favorite potluck contribution. While I probably wouldn’t serve it with most formal dinner entrees (can’t see it as a side for roast duck), it shines with almost any type of fish, as well as more casual dinner entrees like roast chicken.
Currently I am using just a half package of the ramen seasoning since the salt content is pretty high. Put I admit that’s pretty putzy so I’ll leave the final decision up to you.
My only regret about the recipe is that I’ve never figured out how to julienne broccoli myself. I’ve tried my mandoline (even peeled broccoli was too tough), my food processor doesn’t julienne, and by hand is too time-consuming. Every time I compost a big local broccoli stem, it feels like missed opportunity. If you have the answer, let me know!
Otherwise buy it prepped and enjoy!
