Broccoli Slaw with Craisins


Broccoli Slaw is a tasty combination of highly nutritious raw, shredded carrot, purple cabbage, broccoli and juicy craisins…all dressed in my fav thousand island dressing.  A crunchy melange of tart and creamy…a perfect foil to a pulled pork sandwich.  I don’t have to mention how healthy all these raw veggies are…right?  I’ve got to recommend adding either raisins or craisins to your coleslaw, no matter what the veggies used.  The tart sweetness of these wee dried nuggets of nutrition add a great flavor and texture to the ordinary coleslaw.
