Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (125 votes)

We've lightened this popular potluck classic with a dressing of reduced-fat mayo and yogurt. To speed preparation, use shredded broccoli slaw from the produce aisle.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Then use the bagged, real bacon bits instead. Little higher in fat and salt but use sparingly and they should work fine. I'm going to sub lemon juice for vinegar, agave syrup for sugar and bacon bits for turkey bacon...will see how it...

pretty good, but could be better

Since I am vegetarian, I left out the bacon, and this may be why I felt the flavour could be improved. I think next time I make this I will use green onion instead of red, as the onion flavour was too dominant. I will also add some hickory smoked almonds to give it another flavour dimension.

Quick, healthy, go-to staple for ANY event

This is a recipe I always come back to when I'm offering to bring a dish somewhere. Its casual enough in the summer to serve with hot dogs and hamburgers at a grill out or even as a colorful cold side dish for a potluck dinner. Its versatile enough to modify for your crowd.

I usually skip the water chestnuts and toss in a handful or two of unsalted peanuts to pack in a crunch. I also sprinkle in a dried fruit, like cranberries for a tart and sweet surprise. If I'm feeling fancy, I'll also throw in a little bit of garlic powder or hot sauce for an unusually perfect flavor.

Five Star Hint: Definitely let it sit in the fridge for a few hours prior to serving.

Make it all the time

I use this recipe all the time, and I love it. I've never even made it with turkey bacon, although I'm sure it would be good. It's good without it, though. I also substitute scallions for the red onions just out of personal preference.

Broccoli slaw

This was delicious. Adding the bacn bits really makes a difference. Having that crunch makes it really good. Instead of mixing the yogurt and vinegar I purchase Whipped Salad Dressing. Albertsons has it, and that's pretty much slaw dressing. YUM!
