How to Make Broccoli and Red Cabbage Slaw

You’ll need these ingredients in your mixing bowl.

  • 1 (12 oz) packages broccoli slaw mix
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds
  • ½ a small head thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

After you make the red wine vinegar dressing and toss everything together with a wooden spoon.

Next, pop this broccoli and red cabbage in the refrigerator and let the magic happen! All of those delicious flavors are going to marry, creating a simple but tasty side.

I love having this tasty slaw in the summertime as a great grilling side dish. It’s also nice to take to a summer potluck or picnic.

My Tips

  • Part of what makes this recipe so simple is the incorporation of store-bought broccoli slaw mix. I love this stuff! If you don’t want to chop anything, you can exclude the red cabbage.
  • You can double the recipe for really big crowds.
  • If you love crunch, you can add some additional nuts. Toasted almonds or pecans would be amazing.
