Hood Canal Broccoli Slaw

This past summer, enjoying a rare two week respite from a hectic life, this salad landed on my plate frequently. Isolated without cell coverage, mountain views, water views and beautiful blue skies inspired a healthier diet. Time to chew. Time to sit and chew. Time to sit and chew and enjoy the crisp freshness.

Broccoli is available year around so summer memories are just a bite away. I know that some folks don't eat the crown of the broccoli for fear of eating bugs. Me, I soak, press and rinse well and consider Yom Kippur absolution. Well washed broccoli is vibrant and crisp making this slaw far more interesting than the pedestrian cabbage based variety.

I like to add rounds of red radish, thin strips of yellow pepper, red grapes, shredded carrots and a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts. The dressing is a light mayo vinaigrette slightly sweetened. It's a great Shabbat lunch salad and relatively inexpensive to make.
