Need a new side dish that will be welcome year round? This Broccoli Slaw with Apples and Dried Cherries definitely fits the bill! It’s creamy and crunchy and a little bit sweet, making it the best side dish for summertime barbecues to Thanksgiving dinner.
We love our fresh veggies but my kids were starting to get tired of the same old broccoli. At 8 and 9, they are well past the “but they’re magic trees” stage. I happen to love broccoli, plus it’s considered a “superfood” with tons of vitamin C, antioxidants and even calcium.
Broccoli Slaw is made of broccoli,which is shaved into thin strips, carrots and cabbage. It’s similar to a coleslaw but I love that it can hold up to creamy dressings much better and doesn’t get all soggy when sitting in the fridge.
Broccoli Slaw with Apples and Dried Cherries couldn’t be easier to make and the dressing is super simple. Mix up some Greek yogurt, mayo, vinegar and honey. Stir together with the broccoli slaw with a chopped apple (we love our honeycrisp but any crunchy apple will do) and dried cherries. I added sunflower seeds at the very end when I was ready to serve because I didn’t want them to get soggy, which they tend to do if left sitting in the dressing.
That’s seriously all there is to this super easy broccoli slaw with apples and dried cherries. It’s incredibly versatile, fitting in just fine next to a juicy steak or your mom’s roasted Thanksgiving turkey!
