I’ve been watching a lot of Iron Chef lately and they use so many different and creative ingredients to make dishes. So, it gave me the idea to use whatever I had already in the fridge or on the counter to create a salad for lunch with no plan in mind, in this case a raw vegan broccoli cauliflower salad with fat free dressing. Just something I could create quickly that was full of nutrition, color, and flavor.
I had some leftover broccoli and cauliflower that I needed to use up so I used that for the base of this broccoli cauliflower salad. I don’t normally eat a large bowl of raw broccoli and cauliflower so I made a large portion of sweet n’ spicy fat free salad dressing to pour over top and it all combined nicely. I also used some golden cherry tomatoes to give a contrasting color to the red pepper. This raw vegan broccoli cauliflower salad is quick and easy to make for lunch or dinner. Everything you need is listed below. Enjoy!
