Broccoli Slaw

Packaged broccoli slaw is available in the packaged salad section of your local grocery.  Trader Joes also carries it.  This is a great salad for a picnic.  The broccoli shreds stay crisp for hours. And, since there's no mayonnaise, it can be left at room temp, if desired.  Our picky taste testers loved it!
