Introduction: Kid-Friendly Broccoli Slaw

Picture of Kid-Friendly Broccoli Slaw

I hate to waste food. So in this recipe, I'll be showing how to use up the broccoli stems from my previous ible, (https://www.instructables.com/id/Cafe-Style-Broccoli-Feta-Pasta-Salad/), to make a healthy broccoli slaw. I say it’s healthy because broccoli, but the dressing probably isn’t chock full of nutrients. But hey, it’s all about moderation!

I think this would be good to serve to kids. It’s crunchy, covered in dressing, and kids likely won’t notice that it’s broccoli. It tastes pretty much like regular coleslaw, and you get to feel all healthy and virtuous, because broccoli!

Step 1: The Ingredients and How to Make It
