When springtime rolls around, we are always on the hunt for a quick and easy recipe that makes a great sidekick to any meal. And when the temperatures rise, it’s always nice to have a new way to serve the traditional salad recipe. Let’s be honest, the same old greens can get tired and boring. That’s why we were thrilled to taste the Test Kitchen’s new spin on the broccoli slaw. Whether you’re prepping for a potluck or planning a casual backyard luncheon, this recipe, which serves ten, is sure to please. The base of this easy-to-prepare salad is a slaw mix that you can pick up in the produce aisle at the local supermarket. Our Test Kitchen suggests the broccoli slaw mix or a standard cabbage, carrot, and red cabbage slaw combination. We love the addition of the toasted pecans and scallions for adding a nice savory touch, and that satisfying crunch, and the golden raisins add an unexpected hint of sweetness. Our secret ingredient is the lemon zest which keeps the slaw vibrant and extra fresh. If you want to make this salad a main meal, we recommend tossing grilled chicken into the mix. This is a light, refreshing, and incredibly simple summer go-to recipe.
