SALADS, DRESSINGS, AND SAUCES

Broccoli Pecan Slaw with Mustard Vinaigrette

2018年8月8日

I’m holding onto summer for dear life.  I’m so so not ready for cooler weather and all that comes with it.  Snow, for example… no thank you.

While I can’t control the weather, I can control the veggies I’m placing on my table.  This summery, flavorful slaw is me protesting all the fall things that are popping up everywhere.

Broccoli Pecan Slaw with Mustard Vinaigrette

Just a few ingredients come together with big flavor.  The pecans and toasted noodles add a little crunch, and it’s a great veggie pairing to your favorite meals.

NTTC Tip:  I store the salad in single-serving containers, so they’re easy to grab for snacks and such!  Yum!
