Ranch Broccoli Slaw

This super easy ranch broccoli slaw comes together with a creamy yogurt ranch and some fun optional additions. It that can be made ahead and comes together in less than 10 minutes.   

It is a go to summer side for burgers, ribs and pulled chicken or pork sliders on a busy weeknight but it is also a fun summer side for potlucks, bbqs and parties.  I also find it is a good addition to fish tacos when it is left plain.

Ranch Broccoli Slaw comes together with minimal ingredients, with the option of adding seeds or nuts for an extra crunch and dried cranberries for a little sweetness.

Optional Additions & Substitution Ideas

  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, raisins or dates
  • Instead of seeds use toasted almonds or toasted cashews
  • Instead of dried fruit use chopped apples
  • Swap regular coleslaw for the broccoli slaw
  • Double for parties 
  • I used Greek Yogurt, but regular yogurt can be used instead for a thinner consistency
  • I prefer the taste of the 2%, but any % can be used
  • Use your favorite store bought ranch instead of making it – this is mine
