Broccoli Slaw

I’m not a big fan of cabbage or coleslaw (although I do love a turkey reuben made with creamy coleslaw instead of sauerkraut!) so when I came across this recipe in Cooking Light last summer, I figured it would be a great side for sandwiches.  Plus, it’s made with non-fat Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise which lightens it up.

Barbecue Pulled Chicken Sliders

A quick and easy recipe from Cooking Light – especially if you already have cooked chicken on hand.  I cooked skinless, boneless chicken breasts on my Cuisinart Griddler and shredded them with a fork.  I didn’t have onion powder or any onions so I used a small shallot instead and replaced the mini buns with 100% whole wheat hamburger buns (which yields 1 sandwich per serving instead of 2 minis).  The bread and butter pickles add a nice flavor bite to the sandwich.

  • Shallot for onion powder
