Mad Hatter Salad

I tend to be a cook that throws extras into dishes.  When, I saw this delightful dish, Mad Hatter Salad, I could not resist.  It is fun to have a bit of the mad hatter in each of  us.  I gather the idea is to be creative and add what you want to the salad and I did.

Mad Hatter Salad  (adapted from All Recipes


  • 1 (16 ounce) package cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 8 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


In a large bowl, toss together the coleslaw mix, green onions and broccoli. 

Set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the green onions, carrots and broccoli

 for 5  minutes.  Add remaining ingredients.  Cook for another two minutes. 

 In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the sugar, vinegar, oil and soy sauce.

 Seal, and shake vigorously to blend.

Just before serving, combine the slaw mixture with the nuts . Pour the dressing

 over all, and stir briefly to coat.
