A zesty, sweet-and-spicy dressing is the perfect coating for this colorful cilantro-studded slaw.
I’m always down for a good slaw. Sweet, tangy, spicy – I love ’em all!
So for this slaw, I decided to switch up the regular ol’ cabbage slaw for broccoli slaw, which adds a bit more texture to the mix.
And it’s so pretty!
Broccoli slaw mix is sold right in the salad greens section at the grocery store. There are several varieties, and this one had some purple cabbage and carrots in with the broccoli. It added a nice pop of color to the dish.
For the dressing, I went all out adding my favorite Asian flavors (chili, lime, fish sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and honey) and whisked it up with a mix of low-fat plain yogurt and light mayo. It made for a rich and creamy dressing that wasn’t too heavy. And it was absolutely delicious!
When I made this, I whisked everything in the bottom of a big bowl and threw the slaw ingredients on top to combine. I ended up having a bit too much dressing, so I’d advise you to either mix it separately and add part of it to the slaw first OR add in a few extra shredded carrots of something to bulk it up a bit. Nobody wants a soggy slaw!
This slaw tasted wonderful and held up well in the fridge for several days, becoming the perfect accompaniment to lunch and dinner throughout the week.
