broccoli salad ||a hearty vegan salad

broccoli salad starts with an amazing healthy base of broccoli florets, then traditionally is covered in fattening mayo, which is certainly not vegan friendly.brocc salad 1.jpeg

i can’t say i LOVE raw broccoli, but i sure love the benefits of this veggie. therefore i paired it with crunchy, sweet toppings, + tossed it with a naturally sweet dairy-free dressing that is less rich, but just as satisfying.

all assembled under 30 minutes. god, i love eating plant based. doesn’t get much easier than raw veggies + fruits.
