Remember that recipe for Pulled Pork that I posted last time? Here is something that will match it perfectly. For those who cannot eat a meal without a dash of vegetables, this broccoli slaw from Food Network will do the trick.
â€¢ 4 slices turkey bacon
â€¢ 1 12- to 16-ounce bag shredded broccoli slaw or 1 large bunch broccoli (about 1 1/2 pounds)
â€¢ 1/4 cup low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
â€¢ 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
â€¢ 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
â€¢ 2 teaspoons sugar
â€¢ 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
â€¢ Freshly ground pepper to taste
â€¢ 1 8-ounce can low-sodium sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and coarsely chopped
â€¢ 1/2 cup finely diced red onion (1/2 medium)
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, turning frequently, until crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. (Alternatively, microwave on High for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.) Drain bacon on paper towels. Chop coarsely.
If using whole broccoli, trim about 3 inches off the stems. Chop the rest into 1/4-inch pieces.
Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add water chestnuts, onion, bacon and broccoli; toss to coat. Chill until serving time.
I am thinking of using something else rather than turkey bacon but if you think about it, turkey bacon is perfect because it is quite light. Combined with the pork for the main dish, this slaw should be really light. Have any ideas on how to tweak this?
