Asian Broccoli Slaw with Ginger Soy Dressing

Sometime a light veggie dish like this is just what the doctor ordered – especially when you’re trying to eat lighter to compensate for some less than stellar food choices (don’t ask). Broccoli slaw mix is new to me. I’m not a huge fan of broccoli so I’ve never bought it but it was on sale at my favorite store so I decided to experiment.  Although it’s shredded broccoli stalks, it really doesn’t taste like broccoli at all. There’s a crunchy fresh taste that I can’t really compare to anything. It doesn’t have a strong flavor by itself so you could add any dressing to it.   If you want to make this a little more hearty, you could add shrimp or chicken. The dressing is tart/ sweet, and a little salty from the soy sauce – make sure you use low sodium sauce. If you leave out the oranges, this would make a good stuffing for spring rolls.
