Easy broccoli slaw with creamy poppyseed dressing and candied almonds makes a super quick and healthy lunch without lectins or sugar to ruin your day.
Take five and make this super easy lunch featuring Trader Joe's Broccoli Slaw. The ready-to-use slaw mix has julienned fresh broccoli, carrots and red cabbage. Just dump it into a big bowl and douse it with my LFG creamy poppyseed dressing. A little almond extract brings out the poppyseed flavor.
Make some candied almonds and you've got yourself a lectin-free, sugarfree gourmet lunch. I also like crumbled goat feta and pomegranate seeds for extra flavor and pizazz. Let's get to the recipe, shall we?
