broccoli slaw with tahini-lime dressing

Broccoli slaw with peanuts, scallions, mint, and tahini dressing.

Broccoli slaw with tahini-lime dressing is an easy, flavorful, plant-based twist on a classic recipe – so yummy, we even used the stalks!



Tahini-lime dressing

  • cup tahini
  •  cup lime juice (1 -2 limes)
  • 2 Tbspsoy sauce or Tamari
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
  • 2 tsp. date paste or another liquid sweetener
  • ⅛ tsp. (or several dashes) of hot sauce


  • 1 ½ lb. (680 gm.) of fresh broccoli
  • ½ cup thinly sliced scallions (white and green parts)
  • 1/3  cup lightly salted peanuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint


  1. To make the dressing, whisk the tahini, lime juice, and soy sauce until smooth. Thin it out by adding more lime juice or water if needed. Add the garlic, date paste, and hot sauce. Taste and adjust the ingredients as desired. Set aside.
  2. Wash the broccoli and trim the florets into bite-sized pieces. Leave as much of the stalk as possible. Cut the end off and then peel the skin away from the bottom if it is thick.
  3. Shred the stalks using a food processor, box grater, or mandoline. You can also julienne the stalks using a sharp knife.
  4. Check that all the ingredients are dry, and then add the broccoli, scallions, peanuts, and mint to a salad bowl. Toss everything together. Reserve some of the peanuts and mint to garnish the top if desired.
  5. Mix in the dressing so that it is equally distributed.
  6. Serve immediately or allow the flavors to mingle for 30 minutes.


  • If you want to add to it, consider a shredded carrot, finely shredded cabbage (red or green), or a few julienned radishes. If you add a lot more vegetables, consider making more dressing.
  • You can substitute a 10-ounce bag of prepared broccoli slaw mix for the 1 ½ pounds of broccoli.
  • Be mindful of added ingredients in the hot sauce like garlic, sugar, or smokey (chipotle) flavors.
