Broccoli Walnut Salad

Broccoli Salad

Instead of the typical green salad with lettuce, try a broccoli salad for your summer side dish this year. With just five ingredients and no cooking, this salad comes together in minutes.


How To Make It

Combine broccoli florets with red onion and walnuts. Separately, make a simple dressing by mixing 1 cup of olive oil-based mayo with 2 teaspoons of vinegar. Add the dressing to the veggie bowl, mix thoroughly, and refrigerate for two hours before serving.


Nutrition

The broccoli and red onion are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. The walnuts also provide fiber and antioxidants, along with plant-based protein and healthy omega-3s.


Pro Tip:

Put the onions in the fridge for 30 minutes to reduce tears when cutting onions. Then, cut off the top, but leave the root end intact. (The highest concentration of sulphuric compounds that make your eyes tear is in the root end.) Peel off the outer layers and chop as needed.
