"I came up with this broccoli slaw side dish when I was trying to clear the fridge out prior to leaving for a vacation. Grabbed what I saw, stirred up a bowl, and gave it a cheeky title based on some of the cute terms my daughter uses for food. I used lite mayo and Splenda, and I'm sure it would be great with full-fat mayo and sugar. Saved the other half-can of garbanzos for tossing with a salad. I also used half fresh, half frozen broccoli (as that's what I had on hand), and it was all tasty."

This was good! Loved the flavor! Changes I made this time: Used apple cider vinegar, cut down the sugar by one TBSP (personal taste), added baking soda to the water for the broccoli to really bring out the green, used craisins instead of raisins. (It's what I had on hand!) Next time I would- Not cook the broccoli! (More nutrition and more crunch raw!) Thanks for a great recipe! I'll make it again!

I really enjoyed this recipe. I used fat-free mayo, reduced the sugar by about half, and added a few extra pepper flakes and it turned out great. I love the contrast of the creamy dressing with the spicy pepper flakes! I will make this again!
