Recipes...Broccoli Slaw

For any who knows me, you know how much I love Broccoli Slaw!

I thought I'd share some nutritional info first.

Serving size 1 1/4 cup is 25 calories, no fat, no cholesterol, 25mg sodium, 5g carbohydrates, 3g dietary fiber, 2 sugar, 2 protein. 40% vitamin A, 110% Vitamin C, 4% Iron, 4% calcium. Broccoli slaw consists of shredded broccoli stalks, carrots and red cabbage.

Seven things to do with broccoli slaw:

3 cups broccoli slaw
4 oz chicken breast (cooked and diced)
2 Tbsp Newman's Own light honey mustard dressing. I'll put it all into a Tupperware container and give it a few good shakes to mix the dressing so everything is covered.

3 cups broccoli slaw
1 can of salmon in water (or tuna) rinsed several times
1/4 cup edemame
1 Tbsp sunflower seeds (unsalted)
2 Tbsp Newmans own low fat sesame ginger dressing
1/2 tangerine or clementine diced
(I'll do the same thing with shrimp instead of salmon)

3 cups Broccoli slaw
1tsp minced garlic (saute in lightly a misto-ed pan)
Add 2 Tbsp Newman's own low fat sesame ginger and broccoli slaw
heat thru (the slaw should wilt a little)
1/4 edemame
1 Tbsp chopped peanuts (optional)
Add Cooked shrimp, or 4oz lean beef, or chicken,

Whole wheat wrap
1/2 cup broccoli slaw
add 4oz turkey breasts
Dijon mustard

3 cups broccoli slaw
1 can tuna (rinsed)
2 Tbsp Red Bull Italian dressing

My friend Cindy V added broccoli slaw to some homemade soup!
I've added it to beef vegetable soup.

I've also made it into a coleslaw with the Newman's own light honey mustard dressing and put it over chicken bar-b-q sandwiches!

Make up your own a strawberry chicken salad! It is a nice change from lettuce! And who doesn't need more fiber in their lives?! ;)

Knowing is not enough, you must apply.
Willing is not enough, you must do.
