Apple ‘n’ Raisin Broccoli Slaw with Goat Cheese January 9, 2013

Jamie says: I made this gourmet-looking, delicious-tasting, and very healthy salad in less than 5 minutes (probably less time than it would take to go through a drive through)- and you can, too! (I made it after yoga in the park to have as a starter before I cooked my dinner, so I wouldn’t be too hungry. And the leftovers were great, too.)

Apple ‘n’ Raisin Broccoli Slaw with Goat Cheese

I loved how the apple cider vinegar brought out the sweetness in the fruit and kept the apples from going brown (thanks to the acid). The broccoli slaw and apples have a nice crunch that is contrasted by the soft raisins and smooth cheese. Can you say, “yum?”

Sweet 'n' crunchy!

Sweet ‘n’ crunchy!

This is restaurant-quality! I’m going to try adding nuts to it one day, too.

Go gourmet!

  • Nutrition note: Eat Smart’s broccoli slaw, made with broccoli, cabbage, and carrots, is loaded with vitamins A and C, two antioxidant vitamins that help keep your cells healthy. Added bonus that the Nutrition Facts label doesn’t tell you- broccoli and cabbage are cruciferous vegetables with anti-cancer properties.
