I love coleslaw. Whether it’s served on top of a deli sandwich or on the side with something grilled| there’s something about its tangy flavor that gets me every time. Unfortunately| this mayo- and sugar-laden treat is just that: an occasional indulgent treat.
I have a recipe for a rich and creamy blue cheese broccoli slaw that is always requested when I’m heading to a big BBQ or potluck gathering| but it’s definitely not an everyday dish. When I’m craving a bowl of that slaw| this much healthier and significantly lighter iteration is the perfect alternative. Weighing in at 313 calories and offering over 34 grams of protein| this chicken slaw salad is a tangy| creamy| and decadent-tasting lunch. Most importantly| it falls in line with all your healthy goals!
