Easy broccoli apple slaw with avocado dressing makes a wonderful healthy side dish for any meal, potluck or buffet. Great textures and fresh flavours.
There’s no shortage of textures in this slaw recipe – you get varying degrees of crunch from the apples, broccoli, nuts and carrots; and creamy smoothness from the avocado dressing. It’s a perfect accompaniment to a rich meal or a lovely side for a light fresh lunch/brunch. Serve it with eggs and fresh country bread; or lox and bagels; or as a side dish for a ham, turkey or roast beef dinner.
I love the combination of sweet crunchy apples with the slightly bitter broccoli in this slaw recipe. It’s a great balance. One of the best things about this salad, apart from the fresh flavours, is the fact that you can make it a day or two ahead. No cooking, heating or reheating. Just serve. Or bring it to your next potluck event.
Simple, quick and super healthy.
- add cranberries
- add green onions or red onions, finely chopped
- if you’re short on time, use a good bottled dressing such as lemon poppy seed, raspberry vinaigrette, honey-mustard, creamy avocado or one of your favourites.
