About this recipe
"If you are new to using broccoli stalks, this is a great “gateway” recipe. The tender stalks add just enough crunch and their delicate flavor really lets the Asian dressing shine. If you have extra veg on hand – some radishes, daikon, cabbage, peppers – you can prep them in the same manner and throw them in as well. This slaw is happy to play. Can be made up to 2 hours ahead." -- Sherri Brooks Vinton, author of Eat It Up!
