Nothing seems to go with barbecue like crispy, crunchy, creamy slaw. The good stuff, I mean. Not that soggy and saturated stuff you buy in a container. The fresh crispy tangy homemade stuff!

And it’s always fun to change things up a little. Bring in some red cabbage, carrots, regular cabbage, and shredded broccoli stalks and florets for a fun, crunchy, and colorful slaw that you can serve as a side or in your pulled pork barbecue sandwich or tacos, or even on a burger. We’re big fans of slaw in sandwiches.

You can usually find bags of broccoli slaw mix in the store with the regular lettuce and bagged salad mixes, but it’s pretty easy to shred up your own, too, if you’re in the mood for super fresh. With my broccoli plants finally ready to harvest, I slice off the florets and use my grater for the stems {honest truth, though, we snacked our way through the fresh stuff with my veggie dip before it could make it into slaw, so the mix you see in the photos is a bagged mix!}.

You can keep it simple like ours or you can add in a little bit of chopped apple or other tart fruits like dried cranberries, or a little bit of chopped red onion!
