Broccoli, Kale, & Brussels Sprouts Slaw


This healthful salad is a delicious blend of sweet and savory.  Crisp veggies (broccoli slaw, fresh kale, and Brussels sprouts), dried cranberries, and pepitas in a sweet and sour poppyseed dressing make it shine!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this simple slaw.  I first discovered it when I bought a package of premixed salad at my grocers a few months back  (The kind where the add ins are in plastic and it comes with a dressing.)  When I read the list of ingredients, I knew it would be easy to recreate it. I have also seen the a bagged mix of broccoli slaw, kale, and Brussels sprouts at Trader Joe's (minus the add ins) just recently.

I have to confess.  I've been known to eat a huge bowl of this for lunch.  Nothing else.  Just this. This slaw makes me happy.  :)

It takes minutes to throw together, thanks to your favorite brand of bottled light sweet and sour poppyseed dressing, and it keeps well for a couple of days in the fridge.  There is plenty of crunch from the veggies as well as raw pepitas and a sweet pop from the dried cranberries.  It's sweet and savory and it's a nice change from the same old salad or slaw.  Because it keeps well, it's a great potluck dish too!

  6. Renee, thanks for adding this recipe in the Cunning Ladies' Friday Party. I was reading your about page and I am amazed on how you gave up a nursing career and a good pay to be a stay at home mom. Like you, I am also in a medical field but am not working at it anymore, not by choice, but by lack of experience. I want to go back so bad for money - I did not really like the feeling of leaving my kids when I go to work but I feel like I have to help out financially and this feeling makes me depressed. Although my husband did not pressure me to go back to work, I feel that I have to go back. I am so inspired that you were able to settle at home as a stay at home mom. Although it has been two years that I have not been working, I am still struggling to adjust as a full time mother. Thank again...

    1. Oh yes, I was really lucky that our family could function on one income. My kids are all older now. I only have one left at home and he is a Junior in high-school. They really do grow up so fast, I am so grateful I could be there to be a part of it with them and not miss all the good and the bad stuff that goes along with raising children. Good luck to you on whatever path you decide to take!

  11. What an unusual recipe. It looks delicious - so vibrant and crunchy and tasty. I have never seen the broccoli slaw mix to buy here in the UK but I will definitely be saving my broccoli stems now for this slaw! Thanks so much for the recipe. x
