Easy Broccoli Slaw Recipe

Broccoli slaw is one of the easiest salads you can make. It’s also delicious and nutritious. It’s a great side dish for any soup, sandwich, or other meal.

Or you can add a protein, such as chopped chicken, tuna, or shrimp, and make it the main dish. Also serve it with corn casserole or your favorite potato dish.

Almost a Copycat Walmart Broccoli Salad Recipe

The first time I tasted the broccoli salad from Walmart, I liked it. However, I knew I could switch out a few ingredients to make it even better. This is something I often do, and I wind up with some amazingly good results!

I’ve made this a bunch of different ways, but this is my favorite. It’s packed with a boatload of flavor and texture because it has nuts and dried fruit. Or you can add other vegetables if that’s what you want. In other words, make it your way, and it becomes your recipe. How can you go wrong with that, right?

Broccoli Slaw Ingredients

You’ll need shredded broccoli, chopped broccoli, and shredded carrots for the salad part of the slaw. Other things you’ll need are mayonnaise, mustard, apple cider vinegar, and honey.

Although I put the amount of honey in the recipe card at the bottom, you can put in more or less if you want. You can also swap out the honey and use whatever sweetener you have on hand. For more crunch, texture, and flavor, I added pecan halves and raisins. You can also add other nuts, seeds, and dried fruit.

How to Make Broccoli Slaw

First, in a large mixing bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients. Stir until well mixed.

Dressing in a mixing bowl

Next, add the shredded broccoli, chopped broccoli, carrots, raisins, pecans, and other ingredients you choose to include.

Vegetables, fruit, and nuts added to the dressing

Pour the broccoli slaw into a serving bowl, cover it, and put it in the refrigerator. I like to leave it for a few hours before serving it so the flavors can meld.

What to Serve with Broccoli Slaw

This delicious salad or side dish goes with so many things, so the list could go on for days. However, I’ll just list a few to give you some ideas.

We enjoy this broccoli slaw with these delicious and creamy ranch pork chops. The tartness of the dressing provides balance to the creaminess of the meat gravy.

It’s also good with this delicious pork tenderloin. The flavor combinations are so perfect together!

Another dish you’ll enjoy having this broccoli slaw with is this Parmesan pesto tilapia. In fact, you can’t get any more perfect than this pairing.

Serve any of these combinations with this beer bread from Back to My Southern Roots.
