Last week I made this delicious broccoli slaw.
I went to post it and just as I was clicking the PUBLISH button, I saw that Debra from Smitten Kitchen ALSO had just posted a broccoli slaw! What are the chances of that?
It's not like we both made a linguine with clam sauce, it was a BROCCOLI SLAW. Not the most common thing, and it was minutes apart from each other's posting.
I often do that. I click on one of the blogs that I read, and I see something I just made! (Pam & Lisa!), so I wait a few days to post it, so the recipe is fresh in people's minds.
I decided to wait to post this recipe, because I didn't want anyone to think she copied me!
It was very good, and now that it is closer to summer, it is a refreshing & different way to serve cole slaw.
......And my recipe is totally different from Debra's recipe!
Broccoli Cole Slaw:
1 package of broccoli slaw mix from Trader Joes (a mixture of shredded carrots & broccoli)
1/4 cup of red or black seedless grapes, sliced
1/4 cup of toasted walnuts
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro or dill
1/4 cup of Hellman's mayo
1/4 cup or more of cider vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl and adjust flavors to your liking.
You may like a creamier texture, or maybe more vinegary.
Pour your dressing over the first 4 ingredients and mix together.
This tastes even better after being in the fridge 24 hours!
Your chicken with figs down below looks amazing too.
It looks fabulous! I had broccoli slaw in my hand last weekend and then I put it back because I wasn't sure. Maybe I should try it!
* Not sure if you noticed, but I'm just playing catch up with your blog (after a very hectic month) and you've been about as busy as the days are long... and you are totally in full on summer mode.
