How to Make Broccoli Cranberry Slaw From Scratch

The base of this recipe is a couple of bags of broccoli slaw mix. To that, you are going to add fresh parsley, green onions, dried cranberries, almonds, and grape tomatoes.

The broccoli slaw dressing is very simple to make and very delicious. It is a combination of mayonnaise, seasoned salt, apple cider vinegar, and a little sugar. Feel free to swap the mayonnaise for Greek yogurt if you are watching your calories.

Toss the veggies and dressing together and refrigerate a few hours before serving.

Where to Buy a Bag of Broccoli Slaw

Some of you may be wondering "Where is Broccoli Slaw in the grocery store?". It is typically in the produce section with the prepackaged salad and coleslaw mix. I have seen it at Walmart, Publix, and Target. You shouldn't have a hard time finding broccoli slaw mix. It is a very common grocery item.

Can Broccoli Cranberry Slaw Be Made in Advance?

Absolutely! You can make this Broccoli Cranberry Slaw several days in advance and store covered in the refrigerator. I like to make a batch on Sunday and eat on it all week. I don't suggest freezing this Broccoli Cranberry Slaw. Mayonnaise-based salads like this don't taste as good after thawing.

What to Serve with Broccoli Cranberry Slaw

This Broccoli Cranberry Slaw makes enough for about 8 people. It is super easy to double or half. We love this at cookouts, potlucks, and tailgating this Fall. It goes with just about everything.
