Recipe for Quick Broccoli Slaw

This is so quick, easy and tasty it should be in everyone's recipe file.  I have a wonderful recipe for a broccoli salad (I'll share next time I make it) but it is a bit labor intensive, not something you can throw together in a hurry.  Like when you have people coming over for dinner in an hour.   And you are driving home and realize you forgot to think about a side dish/salad when you were excitedly throwing the ingredients for slow cooker steak sammies into the crock that morning.  And you don't have anything resembling a vegetable in the fridge.  And you haven't showered yet... Okay, you get the picture.  When this happens to you, run to the nearest store and pick up these four ingredients to throw together a very satisfying Quick Broccoli Slaw.

Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

  • 18 oz (1 ½ bags) broccoli cole slaw mix
  • ¾ cup light ranch salad dressing
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup diced cooked bacon (I bought the already cooked stuff)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Combine all ingredients.
  • Chill and serve.

What do you throw together when you are short on time?
