"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."

I made this for 10 servings. I added baking soda to water to make the broccoli brighter as another reviewer suggested. This is a new trick for me! I plumped up the raisins in hot water, then ...

Tasty sweet/tangy dressing that stretched farther than for 2.5c of broccoli (could easily double the amount of broccoli). I did NOT cook the broccoli. I used pepitas, pine nuts, and craisins in ...
