Do you buy packaged broccoli slaw for a stir-fry and then find yourself with bag of leftovers sitting in the fridge and getting less and less gorgeous each day? I do. This salad came to the rescue big time. I added it to mixed baby greens, but you could use kale or Romaine lettuce instead.
BROCCOLI SLAW SALAD WITH POPPY SEED DRESSING
(from The Bewitching Kitchen)
for the salad:
3 cups greens of your choice
1 cup broccoli slaw
toasted slivered almonds
for the dressing:
1/3 cup yogurt, full fat
water to thin yogurt (about 2 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp whole grain mustard
1 tsp poppy seeds
salt to taste
Start by making the dressing, mixing all ingredients, and whisking well
Add the greens and broccoli slaw to a large serving bowl. Drizzle the dressing all over and gently mix to combine.
Top with almonds and dried cranberries, and serve, adjusting seasoning if needed.

Comments: I made this salad twice so far. What I love about the broccoli slaw is the texture it gives, you “almost” don’t need the almonds, but then again, they do a great job intensifying the crunch factor. The amount of water is going to vary with the thickness of your yogurt. Start by thinning it until it is almost pourable, but not too liquid, as you will still add some liquid in the form of vinegar and syrup. If you use a sturdy green such as kale, the salad will stand in the fridge quite well for a day.
I enjoyed the salad with air-fried chicken parmigiana, a recipe I shared not too long ago, and you can find here.
