I like to either add paul newman's balsamic vinigerette or italian dressing to it. i usually just use store bought premade in the bag. i also like to roast it with salt and pepper and a little evoo.

ok-- roasting-- good thought!

I like to use it as a filling in wraps and pitas. My two favs are a pita with roasted chicken some broccoli slaw, some grated carrot and a tablespoon of peanut sauce. Also great in fish tacos.

I made a faux pad thai with it once in place of noodles - I mean, it doesn't taste like noodles, just served as a healthier vehicle for pad thai sauce and crumbled peanuts and such :) I used the precut bagged kind as well.

Not so much help if you are looking for a coleslaw recipe!

It is helpful, thank you. I do have to move the veggies. ;)
But, I really am looking for a coleslaw recipe :)

I make a fabu Asian wrap with broccoli slaw, a little of Trader Joe's Spicy Asian peanut vinaigrette, mandarin oranges, sliced water chestnuts, a few cashew pieces and a few crunchy wonton salad toppers. I wrap the whole thing up in a Trader Joe's lavash - it's great! Also makes a great salad, if you want to skip the lavash. I usually add a few grape tomatoes and 1/4 cup edamame when it's a salad.

Oh my, that sounds so good.

Would you mind sharing how you make it? Do you saute the broccoli slaw to cook it?

Thanks Glory. Is there a certain recipe for the broccoli slaw?

oooookay, found some great cole slaw dressings under recipes. yay!

thanks for the great ideas!! now I know what ingrediants I need to buy fir the dressing. I'll roast them tonight and get stuff for slaw next time I shop.

Nope, I just buy the bagged broccoli slaw at the grocery store! (it has some purple cabbage and shredded carrots in it too)

I make salad something similar to what Glory does but add chicken, and use Litehouse Sesame Ginger dressing.
