Quinoa Broccoli Slaw with Honey-Mustard Dressing

This mayo-free quinoa broccoli slaw recipe is a fun twist on an old classic! It's vegan and gluten free, too. cookieandkate.com

Confession: I wanted to include this tangy broccoli slaw in my epic salads roundup (it deserves to be in it), but the photos were so green and unappetizing that I couldn’t do it. All I could think when I looked at the post was, “Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!”

Today, I’m re-sharing it with better photos and pushing it to the top of the blog in case you have overlooked it the past couple of years. Ribbit! Even with a pop of complementary color (the coral napkin), the slaw is undeniably very green as written. I’ve heard from some commenters who have added some color with dried cranberries or chopped apple, which sound like delicious additions to me.


This slaw was roughly inspired by an awesome mayo-free broccoli and potato salad that my friend Sarah brought to a spring potluck two years ago. It’s not too far off from my Greek broccoli salad and colorful beet and quinoa salad, but it was just too good to keep to myself.

Shredded broccoli florets form the foundation for this slaw, which you can easily make yourself in your food processor (or you can skip a step and buy pre-shredded broccoli slaw). Cooked quinoa blends right in, thanks to its similar texture and complementary flavor. Add toasty almonds, a tangy honey-mustard dressing and chopped basil for little bursts of freshness flavor, and you have one fantastic mayo-free broccoli slaw.

Fun book stuff:
