Broccoli Apple Slaw | PALEO, Whole30


Updating this old favorite with some fresh new photography, to show off just how delicious it really is!  This has remained one of our go-to side dishes year round (although it's extra perfect in the spring & summer!)

We love the balance of fresh, crisp fruits and veggies with the creamy, tangy dressing.  Recipe has been updated with the option of sliced almonds OR chopped walnuts as a mix-in:  we love them both!



I have loved getting creative with my food concoctions lately, and it makes it SO much more fun having an in-home taste tester who also loves & appreciates healthy food.  Dathan is the one who introduced me to Paleo, and is definitely a "good eater"... in both senses of the word: he eats healthy, and he eats a lot!  



It's been fun to coming up with new recipes for us that are budget-friendly, tasty, and healthy!  This is one of my recent creations: broccoli apple slaw.  I start off with a simple bag of broccoli slaw mix~ you can find it at Trader Joe's, or check out the selection at your local grocery store.  I then toss in a few ingredients, whisk up the quickest dressing of life, and the perfect summer side dish is done.



We love this with grass-fed hot dogs, salmon burgers, and stuffed turkey burgers.  This would also be the perfect light dish to bring to a barbecue or summer gathering... super light & fresh, and a great way to introduce your friends & family to Paleo!  Show them that healthy eating can taste amazing too!


The recipe below is for those, like me, who prefer a light coating of dressing.  If you like a heavier amount, just double the recipe for the dressing!  You can always save any extra for your salads.

Hope you enjoy!



Ingredients:
  • 2 cups broccoli slaw
  • 1 apple, diced (I used Pink Lady)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds or chopped walnuts 
  • 1 tsp of each: almond butter, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
  1. Combine the broccoli slaw, diced apple, and sliced almonds in a medium to large bowl.  
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients (almond butter, ACV, lemon juice, garlic, & avocado oil) until fully combined- this is your dressing.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over your slaw, and toss until evenly coated.
  4. Season to taste with salt & pepper, and enjoy!
