This wonderful salad with broccoli can be a great lunch at the office or a side dish to the main meal. You can make it in vegan version, if you don’t use honey but other sweetener in the dressing.
The salad is fresh with creamy dressing which is absolutely delicious and we would never guess that it’s milk and lactose free. This dressing is on the base of raw soaked cashews which could be substituted by sunflower seeds too.
The salad includes steamed broccoli, fresh raw apple and dried fruit which can be replaced by fresh berries if you have some. That’s the perfect vegan salad to me and we make it really very often as it contains a lot of protein and it is very satisfying.
