Broccoli slawThis is a definite fav. of this blog’s founders.  The recipe came from Everybody Likes Sandwiches, with a few modifications:  I do it with pumpkin seeds instead of almonds because my daughter has a nut allergy, and I use all yogurt in the dressing instead of 1/2 with mayo…  Keep in mind that the red onion should be minced v. small (and in fact, I don’t tend to use much at all) because it can overwhelm the salad.  Katie substituted dried cherries for cranberries and insists it’s to die for.  Cheers!  Ren

1 large head of broccoli
1/4 red onion, diced
1/4 c pumpkin seeds
1/4 c dried cranberries
4 T greek yogurt
juice of 1/2 lemon (or the whole thing, depending on taste)
couple of dashes of hot sauce
a small squirt of honey
salt & pepper to taste

Use a large knife to thinly chop up the broccoli into a rough slaw. Dump into a medium sized bowl along with the red onion, pumpkin seeds, and cranberries. Put the remaining ingredients into a small jar with a lid and shake. Taste & adjust seasoning if necessary. Pour onto broccoli slaw and toss until everything is coated.  Get it in ya!
