Hello friends!

I’m not counting or anything, but I can’t wait until summer.  In fact I’m already dreaming of the days where the Hubs and I will cookout and linger on our porch for hours after a meal.  Since I used to work early mornings and had to be in bed my 7 PM, I still really appreciate those long warm summer nights where it doesn’t get dark until 9 PM.  With this long and cold winter (and spring that feels like winter,) I’m longing for the magic of those summer nights… it’s my favorite time of year.  Cue the Grease music… puhh-lease…

In the summer I try to make quick and easy dinners that don’t require the oven.  I’m all about grilling and side dishes that are assembly only!  My Healthy Broccoli Slaw is just that.  You don’t have to heat up the house, just stir together some of your favorite ingredients.

If you haven’t seen “broccoli slaw” before, you can find it pre packaged near the other bagged vegetables, like slaw or broccoli florets.  I think it is more substantial than a regular slaw, is packed with vitamins and is really yummy.  Plus I love all the color in it… look for a version that already has carrots in it!

Traditional Southern broccoli slaw has mayonnaise and sugar but my version OF COURSE has a healthy twist.

For my Healthy Broccoli slaw, I mix in goodies like Greek yogurt, lime juice and pumpkin seeds.  The tangy yogurt and fresh lime juice is such a unique combination that just screams spring!

To kick the dish up a notch I use fresh garden herbs to bring out the flavor without a lot of work.  This makes my Healthy Broccoli Slaw recipe THE perfect light summer cookout dish!

    This sounds delicious! Is broccoli slaw just shredded broccoli stalks?? I’ve never really thought about it before.
    So much better than regular slaw.

    Broccoli slaw is so crunchy and delicious! Bet this dish tastes awesome. My favorite time of day is dusk, perhaps the same time you’re thinking of!! The lighting is so pretty as the sun sets.
