The Perfect Side for Your Next BBQ

The Perfect Side for Your Next BBQ

May 18, 2017

As the weather warms up it seems to be easier to eat fresh fruits and veggies more often…..not that they aren’t available year round, but they just go better with season! 

From barbeques to family reunions, this summer make sure you always include fresh fruits and veggies at your gatherings.

They can be in the form of veggies and dip, a fruit or veggie based salad, grilled, or made into popsicles (yes even veggies can be in popsicles) & you will be on your way to meeting your recommended minimum of 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day!

Try making this yummy broccoli salad recipe the next time you grill out or go to an outdoor event.

Asian Broccoli Slaw

Minutes to Prepare: 20                   Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of broccoli slaw
  • 12 Grape or Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 12 Sugar snap peas, each snapped into 2-3 pieces
  • ½ can of water chestnuts, each slice should be quartered or sliced into smaller pieces
  • 2 green onions, sliced (both the white and green parts)
  • 3 Tablespoons sesame seed oil (or you can use olive oil or canola oil, but sesame oil is best)
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar (or you can substitute plain white vinegar)
  • 1 Tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ½ Tablespoon honey
  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a large container (that has a lid), dump the entire bag of broccoli slaw into it.  Add the halved cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, and green onions to the container.
  2. Mix vegetables a few times to blend ingredients well and then add the sesame seed oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and black pepper to the container.  Mix well until the vinegar and oil have coated the vegetables evenly.  Add more black pepper if you prefer.
  3. Serve chilled!  Best if eaten within 48 hours of making it.

Tips

  • Add diced red bell pepper to the recipe for more color and sweet flavor.
  • Add slivered or sliced almonds for crunch and a nutty flavor.
  • If you don’t want to use sugar snap peas then swap them out for something crunchy like diced celery or bell peppers.
