Broccoli Salad Recipes Perfect for Warm Weather Days

Broccoli is a brassica that can pull many tricks. It’s as happy mingling with Chinese beef, as it is covered in cheese in a vegetarian lasagne. It’s a vegetable with a satisfying bite that meat eaters will gladly eat, plus it comes loaded with vitamins (C and K), calcium, fibre and antioxidants that are good for you.

There’s no wrong way to eat broccoli (you can even make a slaw out of it’s thick stem) but have you tried it as a salad? Raw or lightly blanched, broccoli’s bright green florets are a great base for fresh, delicious dishes that can accompany meat-heavy meals as a side or be served as a healthy main dish on its own. 

So here’s to giving more credit to broccoli, and making it the star of the dish. Check out our best broccoli salad recipes below. 

4 Ways for Broccoli Salad

Four dressings and four combos for broccoli salad: these recipes just go to prove how versatile broccoli can be. Take your pick.

Asian Broccoli Salad

Blanched broccoli is tossed in a light asian dressing that is equal parts sweet and savoury and full of umami. This would make a great side dish for any meal or add boiled rice noodles and double the dressing to turn it into a main!

We keep it vegetarian with a soft boiled egg for protein, but we think crispy bacon bits will taste incredible here.
