Author Notes: I dislike mayonnaise with a passion, so I have to find creative ways to substitute for it. For slaws, I like to use a mustard vinaigrette. [Note: Mustard is also a great substitute if you are vegan]RellaBellaK

Serves 6-8

  • 1 package broccoli slaw
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown or dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon agave or honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds (optional)
  1. Place broccoli slaw, scallions and dried cranberries in a salad bowl.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients except for almonds (I like to use my immersion blender attachment) and pour over veggies. Toss to coat; refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Top with almonds just before serving.

Hey, does anyone know the best way to prepare the broccoli to get it like the ready-made slaw? I'm making a recipe with florets, so I'll have lots of stalks leftover, but am not sure the best way to transform them for the purpose of this recipe. Thanks.

Don't you think the stalks would shred if you used the shredder disk in a food processor? I've never tried it, but I don't know why it wouldn't do the trick.
