Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 2 heads broccoli
  • ½ cup  thinly sliced almonds, toasted (you can also substitute walnuts, hazelnuts or pine nuts)
  • 1/3 cup  golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup  buttermilk**
  • 1/2 cup  mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons  apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon  granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt (I like to use coarse salt)
  • Freshly ground pepper


  • Cut the florets off the large stalk part of the broccoli. I find it’s easier to cut the broccoli into thin pieces if I work on the florets separately. Starting with the florets, slice them into very thin slices. For the stalks, use a mandoline or sharp knife to slice the stalks/stems into very thin matchstick slices.In a medium bowl, toss the sliced bits of broccoli with the almonds and golden raisins. This basic slaw is a great springboard for adding additional ingredients you may have on hand. Thinly sliced kale, shredded carrots, dried cranberries, radicchio would all be delicious, and healthy, additions to this slaw.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar and salt into very smooth. You don’t want any lumps in the dressing.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad mixture, add the pepper and toss until the salad mixture is evenly coated with the dressing.
  • Serve immediately, or you can make it 2-3 days ahead.
  • **If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, add 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk. Let it stand 5 minutes, mix well, and VOILA, you have buttermilk!
