Asian Ramen Broccoli Slaw

Yay or Nay?

If you loves traditional cole slaw, this is the perfect healthy swap. This Asian Ramen Broccoli Slaw is perfect for outdoor functions because there is no dairy (such as mayo) to spoil in the sun.

Asian Ramen Broccoli Slaw - The Lemon Bowl

Today's recipe is inspired by my cousin Beth who introduced this addictive salad to our family. As the weather starts to warm up, nothing tastes better with grilled meats or picnic spreads than this tart and tangy Asian Broccoli Slaw. Is ramen the healthiest ingredient in the world? No. But everything in moderation - right?

To incorporate this salad into a healthy dinner, simply skip a starch (you have the noodles after all) and serve with grilled chicken or fish. Be sure to toast the almonds in a dry pan for a few minutes before adding them into the salad. The heat brings out the flavor and releases the natural oils in the almonds.
