By now those of you who have been following me for a long time know how much I love vegetables and salads. If I add the former to the latter, I can’t even tell you. That’s what I did this time: raw broccoli salad, which is also one of my favorite vegetables. Based on “The Green Kitchen”, a wonderful vegetarian cookbook that my nieces and their parents gave me for my birthday, I prepared a wonderful warm salad ideal for these cold days. A contrast of color and flavor that will delight you for sure. Fantastic! So read on and discover in RecetasGratis the recipe for raw broccoli salad and nuts that I propose.
Ingredients to make Raw Broccoli Salad:
- 1 head of Broccoli
- ½ Pomegranate
- 30 grams of Sultanas
- 20 grams of sunflower seeds
- 200 grams of creamy or Greek yogurt
- ½ red onion, not too big
- ½ dessert spoon of salt
- 1 dash of crushed black paprika to taste
How to make Raw Broccoli Salad:
First, we prepare the broccoli. We can make the salad with raw broccoli or cooked al dente, which implies leaving it very little time in boiling water. It has to be hard, as I say: al dente. If you cook it too much it will fall apart when you stir the salad and, above all, it will lose a lot of flavors. The idea is to make it crunchy, which is why it is preferable to use it raw.
Next, add in a bowl the chopped onion, the pomegranate seeds (remember to clean them well so that they do not have any rest of the skin because otherwise, they will be bitter), the raisins, the seeds (we can toast them a little first), the salt and the pepper. Mix well and add the cooked and drained broccoli and mix.
Finally, add the yogurt and stir. At this point, it is better to roll up your sleeves, wash your hands well and mix the broccoli and yogurt salad with them.
Now, all we have to do is serve and taste. You will see how delicious it is. This salad of raw broccoli and nuts brings a surprising flavor. An ideal warm salad for autumn. As a second course, we can prepare a cod omelet, which can also be served at the same time as the salad, or, in line with vegetarian recipes, pasta with mushroom sauce.
