WW Recipe of the Day: Easy Broccoli Cranberry Slaw
(90 calories | *3 WW SmartPoints)
This easy healthy broccoli slaw with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds makes a delicious quick and easy side dish or lunchtime salad.
I think it’s the perfect combination of sweet, tangy, chewy and crunchy.
And it’s simple to toss together. Especially if you begin with a package of broccoli slaw mix, which is exactly what I did.
The recipe for this easy, healthy broccoli slaw is adapted from 5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking: 500 Recipes for Lifelong Wellness by Camilla Saulsbury. I made a few changes, though.
Skinny on Easy Healthy Broccoli Slaw with Cranberries
I used a package of broccoli slaw mix with carrots and red cabbage already in it. This saves a lot of time. And decreases the risk that I’ll injure myself with a knife or slicer 🙂
I cut the recipe in half. We like cole slaw and have been eating it often this summer. But two people can only eat so much slaw at a time. And I tinkered with the dressing ingredient amounts.
I made this easy healthy broccoli slaw to go with skinny pigs in a blanket recently. We both liked it a lot. And I’ll definitely make it again. But, I think it’s safe to say that we liked the skinny pigs in a blanket more 🙂
