How do you make Broccoli Slaw with Sesame Ginger Dressing?
First in a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, sesame oil and ginger. Set that aside for just a little bit while you prepare the salad. Next steam the sugar snap peas until crisp tender. This will take about three to four minutes. Plunge the snap peas into an ice bath to stop the cooking process. When cool drain well. Finally in a large bowl combine sugar snap peas, slaw, red peppers and almonds. Gently toss with the Ginger Dressing to coat. Salt and pepper to taste.
What is broccoli slaw and where can I purchase it?
Most broccoli slaw is made with fresh shredded broccoli, carrots and red cabbage. Some versions of it have some green cabbage mixed in as well. Broccoli slaw can be found prepackaged in the fresh vegetable section of most grocery stores right next to the bagged green cabbage slaw. Expiration will depend on when it was packaged. Check the bag for the expiration date.
How far in advance can you make you make this dish?
You can mix this recipe up to a day in advance however hold the almonds until right before you serve so they stay crunchy. Also reserve one to two tablespoons of the dressing to mix in at the same time as the almonds. This will help freshen the salad up.
This dish is fabulous for entertaining as it is just so pretty with all those beautiful colors! Almost like a rainbow! We love this tasty beautiful salad and we hope you and your loved ones do too!!
