This salad with broccoli slaw is a deliciously refreshing change from the traditional salad recipe!
All you have to do is quickly throw together the ingredients and you’ve got yourself an amazing, colorful, healthy salad.
How To Quickly Make A Colorful Salad with Broccoli Slaw
This is a recipe that my sister-in-law introduced me to one summer while visiting her home in Brewster, Massachusetts.
Whenever we come up to visit, she always rolls out the red carpet for us.
Her dinners are no exception!
Because this is her recipe and she lives in Brewster, I’m officially calling it Brewster Salad!
Brewster Salad With Broccoli Slaw Recipe
Brewster Salad with Broccoli Slaw
- 1 12 oz bag broccoli slaw
- 3/4 cup craisins
- 3/4 cup candied nuts, slivered
- 3/4 cup vidalia onion salad dressing
- 1 small bunch fresh cilantro
- 2 dashes salt & pepper to taste
- Toss all ingredients together and serve!
So Easy To Make You Don’t Need Instructions
The beauty of this recipe is that there are really no instructions except to toss it all into a bowl and mix well.
You can’t get any easier than that.
Salad with Broccoli Slaw Keeps For Days In The Refrigerator
This is a great salad to chill and eat later.
It keeps well, better than the typical tossed salad, and can be eaten as leftovers for a few days afterwards.
Add More Ingredients To Make It Your Main Meal
You can also add other items to make it more of a main meal.
Yesterday, I added some canned chicken and ate it for lunch.
It was so good and satisfying!
Salad with Broccoli Slaw: The Perfect Cape Cod Meal
This salad is a great side dish with some grilled local swordfish (from Cape Cod of course!) and roasted red potatoes.
If you’ve ever been to Cape Cod, you know that they are well known for their cranberries.
You can drive by many cranberry bogs while sightseeing.
Hence, another reason why I’m calling this salad Brewster Salad.

Make Healthy Substitutions
To make this salad with broccoli slaw even healthier and reduce the carbs and sugar, take out the candied nuts and just add your favorite nut.
For example, slivered almonds, pine nuts or pecans would be delicious!
Also, instead of craisins, use whole cranberries.
Lastly, I use the light version of vidalia onion dressing and it tastes just as good.
