How To Make Broccoli Slaw
For best results when making broccoli slaw, remove the tough peel that is near the cut end of the stalk and use only the tender interior.
- Cut the broccoli crown from the stalk and trim the end.
- Using a paring knife, carefully cut away the toughest peel, starting from the bottom and working toward the crown. The peel nearest the crown end can remain.
