Sweet Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli is a commonly used ingredient, but what we do not often realize is the value of the stock along with the flowrettes. They too are delicious and sweet!  Broccoli slaw is a wonderful way to use tender stalks!  There are many broccoli salads out there with a mayonnaise based sweet dressing, which are delicious but not so much vegan or dairy free.  So, I thought that I would create one that tasted just as good.  I made a simple creamy cashew dressing with poppy seeds; it was delicious with the added sweet broccoli and carrots! It would be a perfect side for a picnic, but not as heavy as the usual broccoli salads.
