I’ve never really been a fan of coleslaw. I dunno, it just doesn’t do it for me. However, the other day I was grocery shopping and saw a bag of broccoli slaw that looked pretty yummy. I was about to put it in my cart when I noticed that it was just broccoli and carrots sliced thinly – and that it was $4.99. Um. Seriously? I decided that surely I could chop veggies that way myself. I mean really, five bucks for a bag of veggies that will cost me about two dollars ?
So, I bought some broccoli (I was getting it anyway for dinner veggies) and a couple of carrots. This week as I’ve made broccoli as a side, I’ve just used the florets (bushy part on top) and saved the stems for slicing. Tonight was leftover night and I whipped up a delicious slaw to go with the variety of foods.
