I love recipes like that. The kind that you can quickly toss together and one that everyone loves.

I served this broccoli slaw the other evening with my grilled chicken legs. The crunch from the slaw and the flavor from the dressing I made went perfectly with the grilled chicken. But, this slaw recipe goes well with so many dishes. It is definitely one of my favorite go-to recipes.

I used a prepared broccoli slaw from the salad section of my grocery store as my based and then added a bit of onion and mixed it all together with my dressing.

From start to finish, I had this slaw made in less than 10 minutes.

I don’t know about you, but when a slaw recipe tastes that great and can be thrown together in a jiffy, I call it a keeper for sure!

    I love this recipe! I buy the bags of broccoli slaw but never do anything creative with them.

    So funny story about slaw and me…I was a few weeks pregnant and we told no one. I went to a neighbors party and she served some sort of slaw, I made a plate and took one bite and nearly lost my lunch. To this day I can not eat slaw of any kind. Not that you asked or anything, I am sure this is a lovely side.

    Why is 1/2 of a chopped red onion mentioned twice in the ingredient list?

    Can lemon juice be used in place of lime?

    I love the bags of brocoli salad. So convenient and good! I add diced apple, walnuts and raisins to my slaw. I am going to try your dressing recipe. Sounds easy and delish! I am serving the slaw with Sweet Baby Ray’s crock pot chicken which I have added chunks of pineapple and red & green peppers to. Can’t wait to try it all tomorrow evening!

    Broccoli slaw is one of my favourites! and if you are on a budget, get yourself a mini chopper (about ten dollars) and shred it fresh at about 1/3 the cost. A great way to use up broccoli and cauliflower stems.

    I’m a stay at home dad, chef, maid, nanny, etc. I like to make my wife low calorie, low cholesterol dishes as much as possible. Question: How important is the sugar in the dressing? Can I skip it and not ruin the recipe?

      Hi Pat,
      It just adds a bit of sweetness to the recipe. If you’d prefer, you could try it with raw honey instead.
