If you saw my Pineapple Teriyaki Pork Cutlets last week you may have noticed the broccoli salad next to it. I received some emails asking for the recipes, so here you go! Most broccoli salads use mayonnaise, but I thought I’d change it up a bit and use Greek Yogurt and I also gave the salad a slight Asian flavor to go with my pork. It turned out great and was quite easy to put together and no cooking!
First, you’ll need some raw broccoli. I got a 12 ounce bag of broccoli florets but you could cut-up a large head of broccoli and discard the stems. Make sure the florets are bite size so cut-up any large pieces. I do NOT recommend using thawed frozen broccoli. It would be too soft for this salad and get all mushy.
Mix in some dried cranberries such as Ocean Spray Craisins.
Add some sliced red onion.
Then in a small bowl make the dressing by combining plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani fat free plain Greek yogurt), sugar, white vinegar, cilantro, ginger, orange juice, and salt/pepper to taste. You may want to adjust the sugar to your personal taste.
Pour the desired amount of dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Cover the salad and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Before serving, add some lightly salted cashews to the salad. Do NOT add the cashews too long before serving because they’ll get soggy. Next time I think I’ll add a little bacon to the salad!
