Raw Broccoli Slaw

Raw Broccoli Slaw is not only Raw, Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegetarian and Clean but it is so delicious, too!  Loaded with some of the most nutritious vegetables and topped with a wholesome apple cider vinaigrette.  And it only takes 10 minutes to prepare.

Fresh Market serves this Broccoli Cranberry slaw out of their deli department that is delicious, but a bit too sweet for me.  I have been fudging around in the kitchen trying to come up with a clean healthier version that tastes just as good if not better, and let me just say as I rub my nails on my shoulder, I have.  Nom nom nom!

We love this slaw,  I could eat it several times a week.  I usually make a huge serving for dinner so that I will have leftovers for lunch the next day.  The recipe is obviously loaded with insoluble and soluble fiber which are considered gut-healthy fiber and make us feel full longer, but the vitamin and mineral content in this dish is through the roof.  Put your hands up!

Don’t be scared of the raw part of this dish, because you are shredding the vegetables, especially the broccoli which a lot of people have a hard time eating raw, you feel like the vegetables have been cooked.  Most people will assume that they have been and enjoy the dish.

    I made the slaw to go in lentil tacos and I just tried it without the tacos – yummy! My husband and I both don’t usually like slaws, but we we both agreed that this one is pretty good.

    1. Glad you and your hubby like the slaw. Topping it on tacos sounds like an awesome idea, I will have to give that a try!

    Honey comes from bees, bees are classified as animals so this is not began. With thay said it is freaking good.

      Hi Chris, I did know that honey is not allowed on the vegan diet, but many vegetarians allow it. I am glad you like the recipe, it is pretty awesome!

  5. Love your work. I look forward to the recipe posts. Which carrot ingredient is the broccoli? Recipe sounds delicious. We don’t have broccoli slaw in Australia. Can’t wait to try it!

    1. Hey Jane,
      Thanks for the heads up on the typo, I fixed it and it should read 1 1/2 cups of Broccoli. The recipe is delicious and oh so healthy. Enjoy. Amy

  6. Thanks for sharing!

    The broccoli salad looks better that the mayo filled ones sold in grocery stores. The Fourth of July is around the corner, and I think the salad would make a great side dish.

    1. Amandah,

      I have always loved slaw, but not all the calories and unhealthy ingredients. This recipe hits the mark with the slaw flavor, but WAY more healthy for you. Enjoy. Amy
