Broccoli Slaw Salad

I take a shortcut when I can and one of these shortcuts would be bagged broccoli slaw mix. It’s a mixture of shredded broccoli and carrot.  I’ve used it here with some cucumber and red onion along with some fresh cilantro to create a nice slaw.  The dressing is a sweet; made with seasoned rice vinegar, sesame oil and honey.  I really recommend using the sesame oil.  I’ve tried making it with olive oil and it’s just not as good.  The clean crisp sesame oil blends so well with the rice vinegar.  There are 2 types of rice vinegar; seasoned and unseasoned.  This one uses the seasoned which gives a nice sweet flavor.  I like the broccoli slaw mix as an alternate to cabbage for a nice crunchy and flavorful slaw.

I served this with my fresh mex turkey tacos and a guacamole salsa.  A healthy, fresh twist on a Mexican dinner.
