The Best Sesame Soy Broccoli Salad
Hello broccoli salad! Broccoli salad with a sweet and tangy dressing is my new go to for summer parties. Is spoonable, super healthy, and simply delicious.
When you’re trying to eat healthier but want something more substantial than a leafy green salad, broccoli salad is there for you. I love the crunch and heft of broccoli, especially when it’s cut up into bite size spoonable pieces.
Some people aren’t into raw broccoli, but I love it! I always go for the raw broccoli on those vegetable platters that seem to be at every potluck/party you go to.
This is a simple broccoli salad: you have the bulk of it, raw broccoli; crunchy red onions for a bit of acidity and raw crunch, craisins for sweetness, almonds for a nutty counter point; and a sweet and tangy soy-rice vinegar-sesame dressing.
