What is broccoli slaw?
Broccoli slaw is a mixture of raw broccoli stalks, stems, carrots, and red cabbage. It’s sold in a bag in the produce aisle at the grocery store and when it comes to easy meal prep, you can’t beat it.
Because as much as I love this healthy broccoli slaw recipe, I’m not about to shred all that produce!
If you’d rather shred your own broccoli slaw in your food processor, that’s totally up to you!
Shredded broccoli slaw is a nutritional powerhouse. For my Weight Watchers friends, each portion is only 2 points.
- broccoli slaw mix
- fresh parsley
- apple cider vinegar
