Spicy Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli is gorgeous at the farmer’s market right now, and so good for you! Did you know broccoli is a great source of calcium and can act as an anti-inflammatory?  This broccoli slaw makes a great accompaniment to burgers and dogs on the grill.  The kick comes from onion and cayenne pepper.  This would also make a great condiment for grilled brats or tacos.

  • 1 T. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. cayenne pepper
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 C. packed fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lb broccoli, I used baby broccoli that had long stems
  • 1/2 head Napa cabbage, shredded

In the food processor add the oil, spices, lime juice, onion, sugar, and cilantro.  Blend until the herbs and garlic are minced.  Transfer to a large bowl.  In the food processor, attach the grating blade (no need to wash the bowl) and shred the broccoli with the stems, and the cabbage.  Dump the veggies into the bowl with the dressing and toss to combine.  Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
