The Ingredients and Recipe
Great Green Salad Slaw Notes
• You can use a cabbage-based coleslaw mix for this recipe as well - I used the broccoli slaw because that's what was available in the store.• Sunflower seeds and walnuts would also work well with this recipe. • You can try different flavors of vinegar to change this up - apple cider and balsamic would work well. • If the dish feels a little bland, you can always season it will a little salt and pepper - or try celery salt for additional flavor.
