Cruciferous Crunch Broccoli Slaw Salad (Dairy-Free, Mayo-Free, Keto

Summer might be winding down but it’s never too late to throw a new side dish into the mix. This cruciferous crunch broccoli slaw salad features two of the many wonderful things one can find at Trader Joe’s. Based off the name can you guess??? That’s right, a bag of cruciferous crunch collection and a bag of broccoli slaw! You can throw this salad together in 10 minutes and bring it to a BBQ or keep if for yourself and enjoy it all week! It’s dairy-free and contains no mayo which apparently some people (my fiance) have a strong hatred for. And add an added bonus it’s high in fiber, vitamins and healthy fats! Enjoy.
