Vegan Broccoli Slaw

I can't take photos worth a crap.  Sorry.  I might just leave out photos for the most part, except to show steps that are actually difficult to explain with words.  See, look at this pathetic photo:

But I promise the food in the bowl looks way better in real life and is quite tasty, so you should try this at home.  This recipe is adapted from the recipe at the following website:
I changed it to make it gluten free, onion free, and less sugary.  Also, the recipe seemed to call for too much dressing, but you can certainly add more if you like.

Vegan Broccoli Slaw

1 bag coleslaw mix (about 14 oz.)
1 1/2 large broccoli trees, chopped (about 2 cups)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/8 tsp cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt (more to taste)
pinch of dried ground ginger

Mix the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix the last 7 ingredients in a cup, stir, and pour over the vegetable and nut mixture.  This salad retains the dressing flavor quite well, so it will keep for at least a day (probably longer, but we gobbled it up pretty quickly so I can't make any promises).

If you want some spice, I'd add some sriracha to the dressing (I'll probably try this the next time I make some!)

This slaw is so light and crunchy and flavorful.  I hope you like!

Soon to come: Vegan Stuffed Eggplant (gluten free)
