This is a wonderful raw version of the traditional broccoli salad with bacon and cheddar.
Someone else deserves the credit for this recipe, but I can’t remember where I got it from. Sorry!
I am not a huge fan of onions, so I prefer to use only 1/4 cup, and add the onion to the dressing ingredients in the blender. I also sometimes throw the broccoli in the dehydrator for a while before I mix it with the other ingredients, just to soften it up a little.
This recipe is an adaptation of several recipes – two by Chad Sarno, and one by Vanessa on GLiving. Chad Sarno calls it “Trio of Shaved Cabbages with Sweet Sesame Vinaigrette” – it really can be a simple salad or an elegant party dish. I just use what I have on hand, and the vinaigrette is never the same twice, but this always turns out so tasty. You can also add sliced baby bok choy, hemp seeds, etc. Hope you enjoy it!
This is from a Vegetarian Times recipe. They served it with fettucine noodles and described it as having “the texture of an Alfredo sauce”.
I serve it over julienned veggies – carrots, parsnips, zucchini, peppers, cucumber, etc. – softened with salt and oil or use it as a guacamole-type dip for veggie sticks.
It’s really refreshing and we enjoy it as a summer salad. I hope you enjoy it too.
