An Epic Broccoli Salad

An Epic Broccoli Salad

This salad came about quite simply, working with what we had on hand in the refrigerator (and not wanting to go to the supermarket!). The result is a refreshing salad that ticks all the boxes..Fresh, nourishing, and most importantly, delicious! Enjoy!!


6 T extra virgin olive oil

6 T good quality mayo (preferably homemade)

3 T apple cider vinegar

1 T good Dijon mustard

2 tsp maple syrup (optional)

2 T fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

1 broccoli, finely chopped (1/2 cm pieces)

1/2 cauliflower, roasted at 200C for 30mins with olive oil, sea salt, sumac)

1/2 fennel bulb, finely chopped

1/4 green cabbage, finely shaved

Topping: Toasted sunflower seeds or tamari almonds


In a good-sized mixing bowl, place olive oil, mayo, cider vinegar, maple syrup (if using), lemon juice and sea salt. Give a good whisk until thoroughly mixed. Add red onion and broccoli, giving a good mix (preferably with your hands) as the broccoli will begin to break down a little, and slightly marinate in the dressing. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and serve chilled.

This salad gets better with a little time so it is great to make ahead/early!
