Our family absolutely loves broccoli, so I'm so happy there's finally a slaw mix in stores that uses broccoli stems. I like this slaw best after it's 20 minutes or so for the flavors to meld. —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts
As a change from mayonnaise-laden slaw, I created this refreshing alternative. It uses many of the garden vegetables I grow, so it’s also economical. I serve it at our family reunion each Fourth of July, and it’s always a big hit at church socials.
This salad gets its pleasant crunch from ramen noodles, almonds and sesame seeds. "It's my most asked-for recipe," says Edith frost from Mountain View, California. "An adaptable main dish, it works well with chicken or turkey, too."
This is no ordinary, boring slaw! Bursting with flavor from fresh fruit, cilantro and red bell pepper, guests will rave over this summer slaw for days! For easier preparation, purchase packaged shredded cabbage. If you cannot find papaya, substitute mango. Taste of Home Test Kitchen - Greendale, Wisconsin
Corn and cabbage are a different combo in this creamy coleslaw sprinkled with peanuts. "This salad is especially tasty when I use homegrown corn I've cut off the cob," reports Patrice Ehrlich of Merced California. It's inexpensive, too, at only 39¢ a serving.
