DELICIOUS SALAD RECIPES

Creamy Broccoli Salad

This Creamy Broccoli Salad has to be the perfect lunch or dinner idea. It’s creamy, delicious and super easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped
  • 1 big carrot, julienned
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 slice of red cabbage, chopped
  • 1/4 of a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of raw pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise (vegan mayonnaise)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground flaxseed
  • 150 g of turkey bacon, cooked and chopped

In a pot add salted water to boil. Wash and chop the broccoli, including the stalks and stems. Those parts of the broccoli are edible too, why wasting them?


Cook the broccoli in salted water for 5-6 minutes, until tender, but crunchy. In the meantime, cook the turkey bacon in a pan with no oil until crispy. Set aside to cool.

In a big bowl add the vegetables and the seeds.
