If you’re not familiar with broccoli slaw, here’s the deal: It’s a mix of shredded broccoli stems, carrots, and cabbage, and it’s as versatile as it is healthy! When steamed until soft, it makes an amazing noodle swap. When tossed with salad dressing, it makes a yummy side dish with just the right amount of crunch.
It’s also an easy way to bulk up meatloaf. Find it in the produce section — it comes in bags as well as plastic tubs.
