Insta Meals Monday: Broccoli Slaw Salad

I got this recipe from a meeting I went to about a month ago and adapted it for our family. I left out the Ramen noodles, the seasoning that comes with it and Bacon Bits, and revamped the sauce to include Bragg's Liquid Aminos. The sauce also called for a 1/2 c of sugar which I omitted. 

It still turned out AMAZING. This is seriously my new favorite side dish...and who I am kidding? I'd totally eat it as a main course. We've paired it with portobello mushroom burgers and gluten-free pizza.

The Recipe: Broccoli Slaw Salad

What you need:
1 pkg broccoli slaw (I found organic at Trader Joe's for $1.99)
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice)
1/4 c shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 c slivered or shaved almonds 
1/4 c rice vinegar
1/4 c olive oil

Mix broccoli slaw, cheese, sunflowers seeds and almonds in a large bowl. Pour sauce ingredients into a small bowl and combine. Pour sauce over slaw, stir to combine and serve! 

We eat it immediately, but it's also delish leftover or chilled for a few hours. 

To be honest, I didn't even know they MADE broccoli slaw until I tried this salad at the meeting. Now I'm hooked! You'll never know you're eating broccoli! 

**If you're unfamiliar with Liquid Aminos, it's a great gluten-free alternative to soy sauce. 

Portobello burger: grilled on a skillet and served with roasted red peppers, avocado, spinach and cheese with pesto as the sauce on an Udi's gluten-free bun. Yum.
