Today after my walk I was starving! I had a delicious shake for lunch but I was craving fresh vegetables. For dinner I had to have a salad and I decided it was a garden slaw kind of night! Yum!

 Here is what you need:

1/4 cup sliced raw almonds, toasted

1 bunch mature broccoli stems

2 carrots, peeled

3 Tbsp light olive oil

3 Tbsp rice vinegar

3 Tbsp honey

3 Tbsp Greek yogurt {I love Greek yogurt}

1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp fresh black pepper

fresh broccoli flowers for garnish

Directions:

  • Start by toasting the almonds; put them in a small skillet, without oil, over medium heat and shake until almonds start to get golden brown. Remove and set aside.
  • Make slaw by peeling the tough skin off the broccoli stems, then using the peeler, make curls out of the tender insides of the broccoli stems. Put in bowl.
  • Use the peeler to make curly slaw out of carrots, add to bowl.
  • Make dressing by whisking together the remaining ingredients until smooth; then pour the dressing over the slaw.
  • Add the toasted almonds, tossing to combine.
  • Let stand for 30 minutes, tossing several times.
  • To serve, spoon portions onto individual salad plates. Top with fresh cleaned broccoli flowers for garnish and flavor. You will have enough salad for 4 to 6 people.
