Fresh salads are a great way to add fiber and variety to your diet. This broccoli coleslaw lends a new twist to the traditional idea of coleslaw, providing more options to your menu and taste buds. There is a very small amount of shredded carrot in the prepackaged slaw, but it won’t be enough to throw you off plan per serving. One serving equals 2 cups of slaw by itself, or you can eat 1 cup and add another 1 cup of raw or 1/2 cup cooked vegetable. It also covers your fat for one meal.
1 12-oz package organic broccoli coleslaw mix (found in produce section with packaged salads)
¾ cup organic or Non-GMO mayonnaise (Primal Kitchen or Hellman’s Organic)
1 tsp. prepared yellow mustard
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. Braggs apple cider vinegar
Stevia to sweeten, if desired
Salt, pepper to taste (can also add basil, parsley and celery seed to taste)
Place the broccoli coleslaw mix into a medium bowl. In small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon, vinegar and spices. (If using stevia to sweeten, only start with a couple of drops and add more if needed.)
Pour over broccoli coleslaw, mixing well.
Store in refrigerator at least one hour – but preferably several hours to overnight.
