Easy Asian Broccoli Slaw Made with Coconut Milk
This is great as a side for a picnic or to top a veggie burger hot off the grill. It’s creamy with coconut milk and has a little kick from Sriracha. Mincing the broccoli will fool the pickiest eater into trying a few bites.

This dish comes together in minutes, so it’s perfect for an impromptu party. I don’t use many bagged veggies, but broccoli slaw is my exception. It’s not expensive and is great to throw into stir-frys, soups, stews and salads. Plus broccoli gives a nutritional punch to any dish.

    This looks just outstanding! I’m so intrigued by the addition of coconut milk – brilliant idea! Also, I love your suggestion on how to adapt it for picky eaters (mincing!) and how to bulk it up with flavorful extras. So easy, so flexible! Can’t wait to try this!
