Strawberry Lemon Broccoli Slaw

This salad screams summer! Its so delicious and light and would be a perfect dish to take to a potluck. This picture doesn't do it justice. It looks so pretty in person.

1 12oz pkg of Broccoli Slaw (found at most grocery stores)
11 strawberries, chopped
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup coconut cream (I use the canned coconut cream from Trader Joe's, but you can turn a can of coconut milk upside down and leave it in the fridge for a couple days, and then use the cream at the top)
4 dates
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2-1 Tablespoon lemon juice (If you are not a lemon person use just 1/2 T and then it won't have much of a lemon flavor. 1 T is perfect to me. You can always mix the other 1/2 Tablespoon in later)


Place dates and 1/4 cup water in blender, and blend until smooth. I use my magic bullet for this one, and let the dates soak for a while before blending. After the dates and water have formed a paste, add coconut cream and almond milk and blend until combined well. Stir in lemon juice.

In a large bowl place all other ingredients (broccoli slaw, strawberries, raisins & pecans) and mix to combine.

Add dressing to the salad and mix until all the ingredients are coated well.
