Broccoli Slaw

Ingredients:
Dressing ingredients:
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon or stone ground mustard
1 teaspoon maple syrup or other sweetener of choice (I used agave)
1 garlic clove, minced
½ teaspoon lemon zest
Sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
½ cup cold pressed organic extra virgin olive oil

Salad Ingredients:
1 -16 ounce package of broccoli coleslaw mix (or 1-2 heads broccoli grated with stems & a few shredded carrots)
½ cup fruit sweetened dried cranberries
¼ cup chopped scallions
¼ cup chopped pecans

Directions:
If using fresh broccoli and carrots, shred both, including the broccoli stalk and crowns (I used a food processor but by hand works also). If using the packaged coleslaw mix, add mix, cranberries, and scallions to a large bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a separate bowl with a whisk. Pour over the salad ingredients and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving, or up to a few days.

This was a new recipe off pinterest, and made a great, healthy lunch option or just late-night snack.
