Clean Eating Broccoli Slaw Recipe

Clean Eating Broccoli Slaw was a new one for me. I never had it at parties or barbecues. But after making this, I’m seriously questioning my upbringing. This stuff is so crazy good!

The key is to let the sugar dissolve before stirring everything together. But other than a few minutes of waiting time, this recipe is so fast and simple to put together!! Particularly when you purchase the broccoli already cut into slaw.

I found a package of organic slaw that had a few shreds of carrot mixed in, but not much. it was mostly broccoli, and it was perfect! Of course, you can shred your own broccoli if you have the attachment on a food processor. If you go that route, I recommend using about 2 cups. But it sure saves time if you can just pick up a bag at the store!

This dish is perfect for a tailgating party, a barbecue or just about any general gathering. This will definitely make it into my regular meal rotation! Yum!!


NOTE: You can use either store bought or homemade mayo for this.

    I’ve been trying out different coleslaws and a whole new world opened up when I realized I could use other cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. LOVED your recipe, except that I used Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, and I added a red bell pepper just for color. Even my husband, who tends to avoid salads, had a generous second helping. Thanks!
    I’m sharing your recipe on my blog for family and friends. 🙂

    Made this last night and boyfriend and I loved it! I ended up adding in two more tablespoons of clean mayo (I used avocado mayo) because I found there wasnt enough to coat all the broccoli. I used craisins instead of actual cranberries because thats all I had. Will make again!
