Recipe Showcase: Broccoli Slaw
As spring begins and we start dreaming of barbecues and picnics, I start to make some of my favorite recipes. I can’t take credit for this recipe, but I have to say that it’s a favorite around our house, to the point that my husband asks for it fairly frequently. Broccoli slaw is similar to cole slaw in that is has a vinegar-based sauce and it made of shredded veggies (albeit broccoli instead of cabbage), but it differs in that it is not a mayonnaise-based sauce. For those of you wondering, here is the recipe:
- 1 bag broccoli slaw (in the refrigerated produce section)
- 2 pkgs chicken ramen (broken up – set the bouillon packets aside)
- 2 cups de-shelled sunflower seeds
- 3/4 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar
In large bowl, combine slaw and ramen.
In another bowl, combine sugar, oil, vinegar, and bouillon packets.
Pour mixture over slaw.
Refrigerate overnight. Add sunflower seeds just before serving.
Makes enough to share (I would say about 6-8 servings?).
