RECIPE: Broccoli Slaw with Cranberries and Almonds

I know this seems like it should be a summer recipe.  But, sometimes, in winter, we want something fresh and raw, like a salad, yet more substantial than lettuce.  This recipe fits the bill perfectly!

Original recipe: Shaved Broccoli Salad with Cranberries and Almonds

Broccoli  Slaw with Cranberries and Almonds
Serves 4

1/4 c. mayonnaise, preferably homemade
2 T lemon juice
1/4 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 pound broccoli
1/4 c. minced red onion (don't skip this - it makes the salad!)
1/4 c. dried cranberries (I think it would also be good with sun dried tomatoes)
1/4 c. sliced almonds

Combine mayonnaise with lemon juice, sugar and salt.

Cut broccoli stems into 1/2" slices.  With food processor running, drop slices through feed tube and coarsely chop.  Place broccoli tops into processor and pulse to coarsely chop.

Mix chopped broccoli with remaining ingredients and serve.

Original recipes advises you to wait 1 hour for flavors to mingle but I thought it was delicious right off the bat and it wasn't any better an hour later.  it wasn't worse, either, so you can definitely make it ahead of time.

I served it with Carrot Pancakes and my husband vacuumed it up!
