Mossy Green Goop


Makes 4 to 6 servings


1 package (12 ounces) broccoli slaw
3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
3 tablespoons fresh or 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1-1/2 tablespoons finely snipped chives
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dry roasted sunflower seed kernels


  1. Bring medium pot of water to a boil. Add coleslaw and cook 30 seconds to enhance green color and tenderness. Remove from heat, drain into colander and rinse coleslaw with cold water. Drain; blot excess water with paper towel.
  2. In blender or food processor, blend sour cream, mayonnaise, dill, parsley, chives, salt and lemon juice to taste. Blend on high until dressing becomes bright green in color. Pour over coleslaw; mix well. Add sunflower kernels and toss lightly; serve immediately


If cole slaw color darkens during blanching, it will brighten up when mixed with lemon juice in dressing. In a frightful hurry? Substitute creamy prepared salad dressing and mix with minced parsley for green color.
