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?).

What are your favorite summer recipes? If you have tried this before, how do you like it?

  1. mmm… looks good enough to eat right off the pictures!! i’ll have to make this and bring it to the next potluck i’m invited to. you should think about sharing a recipe a week with us!

  2. I don’t know if I’m quite that ready to jump back into cooking again (still getting my appetite back!) but maybe a post a month?

    1. post a month sounds awesome!! that gives me something to do to until i can aspire to the level of domestic diva-hood that you’re already at =]

  3. LOL – the only thing I’m worried about is that with my original recipes, I don’t really measure. I just kind of through stuff in, so I don’t know how much I put in the recipe. I did make a great Mediterranean Pasta the other day, though.
