"I came up with this broccoli slaw side dish when I was trying to clear the fridge out prior to leaving for a vacation. Grabbed what I saw, stirred up a bowl, and gave it a cheeky title based on some of the cute terms my daughter uses for food. I used lite mayo and Splenda, and I'm sure it would be great with full-fat mayo and sugar. Saved the other half-can of garbanzos for tossing with a salad. I also used half fresh, half frozen broccoli (as that's what I had on hand), and it was all tasty." — Rock_lobster

2 1/2 cups
broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
ice water, or as needed
1/2 (15 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
red pepper flakes
salt and ground black pepper to taste
sunflower seeds, or to taste
This was good! Loved the flavor!
Changes I made this time: Used apple cider vinegar, cut down the sugar by one TBSP (personal taste), added baking soda to the water for the broccoli to really bring out the green, used craisins instead of raisins. (It's what I had on hand!)
Next time I would- Not cook the broccoli! (More nutrition and more crunch raw!)
Thanks for a great recipe! I'll make it again!
I really liked this and so did my family! Thank you!!!!
I really enjoyed this recipe. I used fat-free mayo, reduced the sugar by about half, and added a few extra pepper flakes and it turned out great. I love the contrast of the creamy dressing with the spicy pepper flakes! I will make this again!
I was looking for a new garbanzo salad recipe that also had broccoli and stumbled upon this one. I changed ingredients up a bit - for the dressing, used 2 tbsp cider vinegar and 2 tbsp mayo with 1 tsp table sugar and a few drops of liquid stevia. I grated the carrot, and used fresh broccoli blanched in the microwave. I was not inspired to use any kind of herb or spice so I didn't doctor it at all in that way, using only salt and pepper. The non-spiced flavors of all the ingredients were good, but it was missing something. Maybe Rock_Lobster, or someone else, will try it and offer suggestions? Maybe I'll be inspired myself when I have the rest for lunch today! Thanks for the recipe to try.
Great recipe but as a diabetic I made some changes. I use mayo made with olive oil, white wine vinegar and Stevia leaf drops (1 cup mayo, 1 tsp liquid stevia and 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar).
Very very good! I threw this together quickly for a side dish for dinner last night. It didn't get to cool for an hour in the fridge, but it was still tasty! The dressing is still a little runny after sitting in the fridge overnight, so I might try to find a way to thicken it up a bit.
