A great base for a tasty, healthy side. I'd never had shredded broccoli stalk - its flavor is so mild I think I might be able to sneak it past the broccoli hater in my house! I added a diced apple, 1/4 c. dried cranberries and 1/4 c. chopped walnut (omitting parsley). I agree with previous reviewers that the dish could benefit from more dressing. Also, I was out of plain yogurt, and vegenaise made an excellent stand-in.
This recipe is a good basic recipe that you can do a lot with. I doubled the sauce and grated the stalks from a head of broccoli (with my food processor), I also added shredded carrots. The freshly grated broccoli was much more moist than the packaged kind. I also added Craisins, purple onion, and toasted pecans. I will definitely make this again. I love that it has no mayo.
Ehhh...it wasn't bad, it was cheap, it was easy to make, and it has some healthy ingredients. That said, it's not a particularly great side, okay, but not great. I'll probably hang on the to the recipe though since the latter outweighs the former in terms of its appeal, and like I said, it's not bad. I will say that the addition of dried cranberries really helps out.
This was just OK. I think the biggest problem is that there's not nearly enough dressing, so you can hardly taste it on the slaw. If I make it again, I would increase the dressing by 50%. After tasting it, I added some dried cranberries and that added a bit more interest to the flavor.
This is a solid slaw that is incredibly easy to put together. The lemon makes it bright and the Dijon (I used a full tsp) adds some kick. I made a double batch of the dressing for the full 12 oz package of slaw, because it looked to me like the slaw would be too dry as written. Next time I might try dill in the dressing.
