Easy Veggie Side: Broccoli Salad

I am not a fan of mayonnaise-based salads (or mayo in general), so I try to get creative with coleslaw, potato salad and the like. This broccoli salad is similar to one my friend NS makes, but with an oil-vinegar based dressing (This is also a great alternative dressing style for those who are vegan).

I like to use fresh broccoli and steam it for just a few minutes so it's tender but still has a bit of a crunch. I also like a vinegary bite to this salad, but if you like things sweeter, feel free to cut the vinegar or add more honey.

Broccoli Salad


1 pkg cut fresh broccoli (16ish oz)
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup sliced almonds

  1. Steam broccoli 3-4 minutes in the microwave, until just tender but still very green.
  2. Whisk vinegar, oil, salt, garlic powder and honey together and pour over broccoli. Sprinkle in cranberries and stir to coat.
  3. Sprinkle in almonds just before serving.
The cost:
broccoli: 1.99
cranberries: .35
almonds: .45

Grand total: $2.79; servies 4-6

I saw broccoli was on sale this week at Giant for .88/lb so I decided to give this recipe a try. I usually dress a similar broccoli salad with mayo, red wine vinegar, and sugar so this was a nice, lighter alternative (though I did add a little extra honey :-)
