In my Southern family, we grew up eating broccoli slaw that had raisins, peanuts, a sweet mayonnaise dressing, and toasted ramen noodles on top. It's a delight, which you know if you've had it. But every time I crave it now and look up a recipe, I'm turned off by the amount of mayonnaise or inclusion of the ramen noodle seasonings packet.
So I set out to modernize this retro slaw with a few fresh tweaks. The result is easy, lightened-up, and still oh-so-crunchy.
