Well hey there. How’s it going? Not sure why, but I felt like getting casual there for a moment. Did you know I don’t really like broccoli? Perhaps I’ve endured too many failed attempts at trying to steam it to perfection come dinner time when in actuality I accidentally boil the hell out of it and my entire house ends up smelling like ass and I’m left with a mushy pile of green. Yeah, broccoli has never been my favorite, but occasionally I like to give it another go. That’s why I felt like making this broccoli slaw. Instead of eating the “leaves” of the broccoli, I opted for the shredded stem for two reasons – 1) You eat it raw so there’s no chance of me over cooking it and 2) it came already shredded in a bag and less work during summer = happy Krissy.

When we go camping, or glamping in our case considering we sleep in a cabin with our very own bathroom, I like to prepare almost all the food ahead of time so I don’t have to deal with dishes we can just grab what we want and eat it at the campsite. When we spent a few nights in the woods last month, this easy broccoli slaw was one of the things I made ahead of time to bring. The creamy dressing and tart apple complimented the somewhat bitter broccoli and ended up making a quite pleasant side. Plus, the added vegetables sort of balanced out the obscene amount of hot dogs and s’mores that I shoved into my face. So whether you’re a broccoli lover or you’re a broccoli hater, you might just want to give this recipe a try. If anything, its super easy to make!broccoli slaw with apple and carrot and creamy dressing

    Yummy! I love this time of year where we’re not quite out of the cold early spring – yet some day times are super hot! Craving all the vegetables now and love this broccoli slaw. Thank you.

  2. I have a broccoli slaw recipe with a vinaigrette dressing that I love. Can’t wait to try your variation! It’s so nice not having to spend so much time chopping like I do for other salads. 🙂

    This broccoli slaw is making me wish for summer BBQs! Love the addition of apple so different than what I’ve made with other slaws! Can’t wait to make it.
