Broccoli Salad No Mayo
This healthy broccoli salad gets all the creaminess it needs from a tangy tahini and lemon dressing. I love to top this with grapes, raisins, peppers, toasted cashews, and cheddar cheese, but if you love bacon, throw that in as well!
Servings: 8 servings
- 6 cups broccoli chopped small
- 1 bell pepper orange or red
- 1 cup red grapes halved
- 1/3 cup cashews toasted
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese cut into small cubes
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
Lemon Tahini Dressing
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar or sub red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon honey or date syrup, optional
- sea salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the dressing ingredients together. They can be whisked together, but for the creamiest dressing, add to a blender and process for a minute.
Add the chopped broccoli to a colander, and then pour boiling water over the broccoli to quickly soften it. Rinse it with cool water afterwards.
Mix the dressing into the broccoli and stir to fully coat.
Right before serving, add the rest of the ingredients. It's okay to add the raisins, grapes, and peppers, but keep the cheese and cashews reserved until serving.
