Broccoli Slaw

Crunchy and tasty, it seems to be everybody's favorite. The one side dish that is present at all holiday meals and any other important meal in our family for the last 30 years has been broccoli slaw.

Many times before the family knows what the main dish is there is the "Are we having broccoli slaw?" question. Now I call that a good dish. I have been meaning to publish this family favorite for over a year but never got the pictures. Just too many things going on and not my responsibility.

Notes: The recipe calls for sunflower oil but any good vegetable oil will do.


 Clean and chop three stalks celery and slice three green onions.
Mix together the celery, onions and 1 pkg. Broccoli Cole Slaw. Mix well.
 Mix 3/4 cup sliced almonds, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, and 1 can rice noodles. Mix well.
Mix dressing: 1/2 cup sunflower oil (or other good oil), 1 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup white vinegar.  Add just before serving and toss well. Note: you may not need quite all the dressing. Just add until all the mixture is moist.

When Alexis first implored me to try broccoli slaw a few years ago, I told her she was nuts. I was surprised by how much I liked it and it rocks with any Thai dish or better yet, fusion Asian tacos.
