Basic Broccoli Salad That Even Your Dad Will Like

You got it, this recipe even passed the Dad test. And let me tell you, it is quite an accomplishment to get my father to even try any of my superfood recipes. Now before I reveal the recipe I put together, I want to let you know that I didn't come up with it on my own. It was inspired by a salad I had once at Whole Foods, and I'm sure there have been multiple replications online and in other recipe books. However, this may be one of my favorite recipes so I felt the need to make it myself and share it with you guys.

Here are the basic ingredients and directions:

2-3 heads fresh raw broccoli
1/2 large red onion
3/4 C roasted cashews
3/4 C raisins or dried cranberries


2T Veganaise
1t maple syrup
splash of ACV
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Chop broccoli with stems into small 1/2inch pieces, along with chopped onion and cashews. Add raisins/cranberries and pour dressing to let salad absorb. Chill for 15mins before serving or the next day for an even better taste. Enjoy:)
