This tasty broccoli salad is bursting with beautiful flavours and goodness. This is the kind of recipe that leaves you feeling extremely healthy. I love the punchy maple ginger dressing and the crunchiness of the almonds.
This is a raw recipe that requires no cooking. This dish is filled with nutrients and I always make sure I use organic broccoli to make it.
The dressing is a really delicious blend of maple syrup, cider vinegar, freshly grated ginger root, coriander, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and mustard. Utterly addictive!
Quick and straightforward, this broccoli salad is delicious in a wrap, as a side dish for barbecues or buffets or simply on its own. It would be great alongside a meat-free burger or with some plant-based sausages.
I used the Veggie Bullet below to shred the broccoli in no time. It is the world’s first cyclonic spiraliser that doubles up as an extra speedy food processor for slicing and shredding. This is a waste-free salad, the Veggie Bullet took no time to shred through the whole broccoli, head and stalk! You can read my full review of this nifty kitchen gadget here.
Alternatively, if you do not have a Veggie Bullet, you can use the coarse side of a cheese grater or a mandoline to shred the broccoli.
