Rainbow Broccoli Slaw with Orange Dressing:

Rainbow Broccoli Slaw with Orange Dressing
Recipe type: salad
  • 1 package (12 ounces) broccoli coleslaw mix
  • ½ cup chopped or sliced almonds
  • 2 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice and zest from 1 large orange
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, orange juice and orange zest.
  2. Drizzle in the olive oil, whisking constantly.
  3. Add the almonds and then toss the salad with the dressing mixture.
  4. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  5. Refrigerate for 1 hour (or overnight) to allow the flavors to meld. Serve chilled.

Sometimes to make a bit more and mix it up a bit, I use 1 bag of the broccoli coleslaw mix AND 1 bag of the regular coleslaw (and just double the other ingredients, too). You could also use peanuts instead of almonds… or whatever kinda nut you feel like that day! Throw it all together in just a few minutes and you’ve got a great salad side dish for your cookout–lunch of dinner!

The orange dressing is light and sweet. Sometimes I use a ginger sauce with my slaw salads, too. The possibilities are endless! Maybe that’s why I like slaw so much 😉 I hate cooking and always need a recipe, but with coleslaw or broccoli slaw you just can’t go wrong! Even my kids will eat it. (#winning)
