Broccoli Slaw, Lemon Poppyseed Dressing & Candied Almonds

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.

Lectin Free Broccoli Slaw

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?

Step 1: Make the Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

In a medium bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients until it is creamy and emulsified.

Step 2: Dress the Broccoli Slaw

In a large glass bowl, empty contents of Trader Joe's Broccoli Slaw container. Dump 1/3 cup of LFG lemon poppyseed dressing over the slaw. Toss well. If time permits, cover and refrigerate to let marinate for one hour.
