Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw Como Water

This slaw has no mayo–vegan or otherwise, so it’s the perfect spring/summer salad to take to a cookout or day in the park. I can also attest to the fact that this slaw is also the perfect salad to eat right from your couch. It’s simple and forgiving. Feel free to play around with the vinegars and tweak the ingredients to suit your tastes. Enjoy!
