Broccoli, carrots, red bell pepper and apple add layers of fresh flavors to this Broccoli Slaw recipe. Tossed with a tangy homemade lemon-Dijon dressing, this easy Broccoli Slaw salad makes a healthy side dish for any meal. For a tasty twist, substitute the broccoli with broccolini—a slightly sweeter hybrid of traditional broccoli and Chinese kale.

- In large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, mustard, sugar, salt, black pepper and oil until well combined. Set aside.
- Separate broccoli into stalks and florets. With vegetable peeler, peel stalks and cut into matchsticks. (If using broccolini, no need to peel stalks.) Cut florets into small pieces.
- In large pot of boiling water, cook broccoli stalks and florets until bright green and still crunchy, about 1 minute. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop cooking.
- Add broccoli to bowl, along with carrots, bell pepper and apple. Toss to coat, and let sit at least 30 minutes before serving.
