Default Broccoli Slaw

My mother-in-law makes cole-slaw with an Asian type dressing, it's yummy but way fattening. She makes the dressing with oil, sugar, soy sauce, ginger and vinegar and tosses the slaw with roasted slivered almonds and butter roasted ramen noodles. I love it, but I should maybe never eat it again. Anyway not long ago I was hungry for that stuff, so I took a couple of stalks of broccoli put them through my Kitchen Aide shredder and tossed them with Kraft Asian Vinegarette dressing. Over that I sprinkled sunflower seeds, dried cranberries and a diced up orange. It was way yummy and had only a fraction of the calories of MIL's version. I like the bagged broccoli slaw too, but hey if you already have the stalks in the refrigerator why toss them out when you can shred them up and make a great little salad?
