When you’re trying to eat healthier but want something more substantial than a leafy green salad, broccoli salad is here for you. I love the crunchiness and weight of broccoli, especially when it’s cut into bite-size pieces that can be spooned out.
Some people don’t like raw broccoli, but I love it! I always go for raw broccoli on these veg platters that seem to be at every potluck / party you go to.
It’s a simple broccoli salad: you have the big one, raw broccoli; crunchy red onions for a little acidity and raw crispness, craisins for sweetness, almonds for a nutty counterpoint; and a sweet and tangy rice vinegar and sesame dressing.
Prepare it for dinner and eat it with a spoon. So satisfying.
