This broccoli slaw is relatively light and very tasty. Serve this with any meal, any time of the year. This is a flavorful salad with raisins, but feel free to use dried cranberries or golden raisins in the broccoli slaw.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (12 ounces) broccoli slaw
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons finely chopped red onion, optional
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, optional
  • 2 tablespoons cooked crumbled bacon, optional
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Combine the broccoli slaw mixture with the onion, raisins or cranberries, and sunflower seeds and bacon, if using. In another bowl combine the lemon juice, vinegar, mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, and celery seeds. Stir into the broccoli slaw mixture until well combined. Refrigerate until serving time.
