Broccoli Slaw with Tangy Ginger Dressing

I’m not a big fan of broccoli, much less coleslaw. However, when I do crave both, what better way to indulge in these two foods then to combine them. Instead of cabbage being the main ingredient in this slaw, I chose shredded broccoli. You can actually purchase prepackaged broccoli slaw ingredients. It’s usually a combination of shredded broccoli, carrots, and red cabbage. Just add the dressing, and your set. Or, you can shred the broccoli and the other ingredients yourself.

This recipe is all about the dressing, and the ingredients that provide the crunch. Hope you like it.
