This broccoli slaw salad is a deliciously refreshing change from the traditional salad recipe!

Not only does it keep in the refrigerator way longer than a ‘house’ salad, but also it’s so much healthier and satisfying.

Broccoli Slaw Salad

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’ve unofficially called it Brewster Salad!

But, this salad is special, so don’t just throw it in any old salad bowl.

I absolutely love this Acacia Wooden Salad Bowl Set (Amazon)!

Broccoli Slaw Salad is 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.  

Broccoli Slaw Salad 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!

Broccoli Slaw Salad: 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.
