Healthy Honey Mustard Broccoli Slaw

This is another perfect tailgating or party recipe as this side dish can be made ahead of time. AND it's really healthy and delicious! I brought this to a few parties this summer and took it to our Clemson tailgate for the Wake Forest game and for the FSU game along with the yummy Southern Caviar Dip. Definitely a crowd pleaser :)  Plus many people do not like the taste of cabbage and this is made with shredded broccoli instead.

Honey Mustard Broccoli Slaw
serves 10, can easily be cut in half if needed, 35 calories per 1/2 cup

- 2  12 oz (5 cup) bags of broccoli slaw found in the produce section
- 1/2 cup scallions or less if you prefer
- 8 tablespoons of non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons of light mayonnaise
- 5 tablespoons of spicy brown mustard
- 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
- 5 teaspoons of honey
- Pepper to taste

In a small to medium bowl combine all the ingredient except the slaw and the scallions and whisk together until well mixed. Taste dressing and adjust ingredients as needed. Sometimes I add a little extra mustard or vinegar. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Toss dressing with 2 bags of slaw and scallions and serve. Sometimes I even throw in some extra shredded carrots (always keep these on hand for salads) when I want more color... for Clemson tailgating orange color is never a bad thing! Leftover slaw is still great the next 2 days. I like to even dress it the night before serving and then I don't have anything to do when it's time to eat it. This is especially convenient when taking it to a tailgate!

The slaw is tangy and crunchy and I love that it barely has any mayonnaise. It's a fabulous side to burgers, hot dogs, chicken, BBQ, a filler in wraps or whatever!

Hope you enjoy!
