Can you make it ahead of time?

For the tastiest slaw, ideally you want to make this up at least an hour before serving, and let it sit, covered in the fridge, to let the flavors develop. Once made, it will keep well for a couple of days. Because this slaw doesn’t have a mayo dressing, it can also be frozen for 2 to 3 months. Place it into bags and remove as much air as possible and thaw overnight in the fridge.

Can you use cabbage instead of broccoli?

You can easily use cabbage slaw instead to make this recipe if you prefer or make a kale or brussel sprout slaw instead. The dressing is also super versatile and can easily be used with other favorite salad recipes.

What do you serve it with?

This broccoli slaw is a great side dish to serve up as part of a cookout with grilled meats, hot dogs, and burgers and it’s also perfect to serve as part of a regular weeknight dinner. Because it is made without mayo, it travels well, so is a great option for picnics and pot lucks. Try it with some of these favorite recipes:

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • You can make your own broccoli slaw by shredding 2 broccoli stalks and 1 medium-sized carrot in a food processor. Using a food processor will result in finer shreds than you will find in most grocery store bagged versions.
  • Slice the red onion thinly so that it isn’t too overpowering.
  • Make this recipe vegan by swapping the honey for maple syrup.
