This recipe comes from one of my new favorite cookbooks, Make it Paleo by Bill Stanley and Hayley Mason of Primal Palate. If you are looking for something to add to your holiday list for friends and family to give you be sure to include this cookbook. It is filled with over 2000 grain-free recipes which are all geared towards the Primal/Paleo lifestyle. The pictures are amazing and they make it very hard to decide what to try first. I can’t tell you how many times I have flipped through the pages of this cookbook after I received it. I have marked several recipes to try, but the first one I tried was Hayley and Bill’s Asian Broccoli Slaw. I knew it would be the perfect addition to serve along side some grilled salmon. And it was! What makes this salad even better is it is easy to make and there is no cooking involved. Just some chopping, mixing, and whisking. Easy….I promise. If you are looking for a side dish that is quick and easy to prepare gives this a try and be sure to go check out the Make it Paleo cookbook….I promise you won’t be disappointed with all the fabulous Paleo recipes Hayley and Bill share inside their cookbook. Oh, and their blog is pretty great too.
