Creamy Crunchy Vinegar Vegetable Slaw

When I make my bacon, apple, and broccoli salad recipe, I’m left with a bunch of broccoli stems, and I don’t like throwing food away. An easy fix for this problem is to shred the stems and use them in a vegetable slaw.

Almost any crunchy vegetable can get thrown into a vegetable slaw if you shred it. Along with cabbage, I typically use broccoli, carrots, and radishes. I’ve also used shredded Brussels sprouts (or even just the leaves left after I clean the sprouts) and cauliflower. All these vegetables are delicious and the variety adds to the flavor and texture of your vegetable slaw.

New Call-to-action

The best and easiest way to get the shredding done is in a food processor. The quantity of vegetables that it is fun to shred by hand is zero. So, if you don’t have a food processor, and you have the yen to shred, I’d recommend acquiring one.

Try this vegetable slaw recipe just once and you’ll realize how easy it is to provide crunchy, tasty nutrition to yourself and your family. Not to mention, any dinner guests you have over will be impressed by the look of this dish.

He graduated from UCLA with a BA in philosophy as well as a degree from the Southern California School of Culinary Arts, and feels food is one of the most important parts of a life - it can nourish, heal, and bring people together.

Michael believes health and well-being are as much a state of mind as they are a state of the body, and when it comes to fitness, food, and life in general, he thinks slow is much better than fast (most of the time). Stopping regularly to examine things is the surest way to put down roots and grow.

He knows he will never be done with his own work, and believes the best thing you can do for your well-being starts with loving and working from what you’ve got right now.
