Broccoli Slaw Salad
How long does fresh broccoli last?
It’s always best to purchase fresh ingredients right before you use them, but sometimes the schedule doesn’t work out like planned, right? Broccoli will last in the fridge about 5 days before it starts going south. Here’s a few things to look for.
- the color will change from bright green to yellow
- the smell intensifies
- it may begin to wilt
Can you eat broccoli once it begins to change? You can but it won’t be near as tasty! A good rule of thumb is if you can’t use it in the first few days you bring it home, freeze it.
Can Broccoli Slaw Salad be made ahead of time?
Yes! You make it ahead of time and tuck it in the fridge. All the flavors get happy together and the salad is done way ahead of time. Letting it rest in the fridge gives it time for all of the flavors to come together, delicious!
This salad will last in the fridge for 3-4 days.
