Broccoli Slaw

Spring is coming, can you feel it?  I, for one, couldn’t be more excited if I tried!

Nothing like firing up the grill and being able to enjoy those flavors we missed so much during the winter.

Last week, we had a 70 degree day in March, and we decided to grill up some chicken.  I had been eyeballing my Secret Recipe Club assigned page for the month, Morsels of Life, and remembered seeing this recipe for Broccoli Slaw.  I couldn’t wait to make it our side dish!  Browsing the site, I found many yummy recipes to try, many of them with an Asian flair, like this Asian Mushroom Noodle Soup.  The other one I know I will be trying is the Chipotle Mayo! Doesn’t that sound good?

This salad was so easy, I bought a bag of broccoli slaw and a bag of shredded carrots, the only slicing I did was the green onions.

Broccoli Slaw Dressing

I made the dressing in a little jar, shook it up and poured it over the top.  I made the dressing a couple hours ahead of time, so that it could marinade in the fridge before we enjoyed it at dinnertime.
