Broccoli And Raisin Salad with Toasted Almonds

This is probably my favorite salad.  It is definitely my favorite way to eat raw broccoli.  This salad has a great crunch with broccoli, carrots and toasted almonds. then you get a little bit of sweet with the raisins and honey.  It is well balanced and a great way to get raw food into your diet.

 

Ingredients: 

1 head of Broccoli, finely chopped

2 carrots, grated

1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup parsley, chopped

1/3 cup Thompson seeded raisins

1/2 cup toasted, slivered almonds

 

Directions:

1. Combine all the salad ingredients.

2. Mix the dressing ingredients until well blended. (Dressing recipe is below)

3. Pour over salad and toss.

 

Dressing: 

2/3 Cup good quality mayonnaise (I prefer avocado oil mayo)

2 TBS. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

3 TBS. Raw Honey

Salt & Pepper to taste

 

This salad keeps up to 5 days in the refrigerator and does a great job of holding it’s “crunchiness”.  This is a super easy but nutrient dense recipe.  Give it a try!

Enjoy!
