Hi, my name is KTC and I refuse to eat mayo in any shape or form. Here is a broccoli salad that is actually good for you- no mayo, no bacon- and it's delicious!
That's me blending the dressing up. Feel free to use a blender or a food processor, I find the immersion blender easiest to clean.
Mix and match the vegetables/nuts/dried fruit you'd like to include. I got a cole slaw mix, almonds, and craisins to go along with the broccoli and scallions.
Adapted from Pinch of Yum
1 head of broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
3 scallions, sliced
1 cup cabbage
1/2 cup almonds, sliced
1/2 cup craisins
2/3 cup orange juice
2 tbsp miso paste* (no miso? just double up on the nut butter and add some salt)
2 tbsp nut butter of your choice (I used peanut)
1 shallot, chopped
2 tbsp canola oil
1. Get all your salad ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Put orange juice, miso paste, nut butter, shallot, and canola oil in blending mechanism of your choice. I used the immersion blender because it is the simplest to clean in this non-dishwasher household.
3. Pour that luscious salad dressing over your anxiously awaiting ingredients and toss.
I cannot wait to make this again for a larger audience! It will be the perfect addition to your next event this summer.
