Creamy Broccoli Slaw


After getting smacked down by the flu for a couple of days I'm back! I'm not 100% but I do have enough energy to add another recipe to my blog! Dedication, I tell ya! The only upside to this flu is that I've caught up on my Nate Berkus shows and even lost 7lbs. But I'm sure once I get back my desire to eat anything more than a glass of cold, flat gingerale and some Cheerios I'm sure I'll gain it all back.
.
This was a recipe that I found late last week. One of the reasons I've never made a coleslaw is due to the time and trouble of shredding the cabbage. Yes, I can use my food processor but it just seems like to much work. Enter in broccoli slaw! A 'slaw' could not get easier than this, plus it uses the little loved stalk of the broccoli! I found the small bag of broccoli slaw in amongst the packaged bags of salad. I used the President's Choice variety (see pic below).


This slaw has a creamy, sweet taste and you could fool 99% of your family in thinking that's it's made out of cabbage. It's the perfect side dish for hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, sandwiches ....

340g bag broccoli slaw
1 cup mayonnaise (I used reduced fat)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp horseradish
1 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp celery seeds

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sugar, horseradish, white vinegar and celery seeds. Mix well.

Place broccoli slaw in a large bowl. Pour mayonnaise mixture over top and mix well. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
