This Broccoli Quinoa Salad is packed with healthy, crunchy, fresh ingredients. Enjoy as a salad on its own, or wrapped up in a tortilla.
Remember that broccoli salad you’ve seen at potlucks? The one with grapes and bacon bits doused in mayo? Yeah…that guy. Well, would you like to meet his long lost distant cousin (who happens to be vegan)!?
This is an ultra-healthy, super crunchy vegan version of that unhealthy (masking as healthy) salad. Try it as a wrap or just on its own. Either way, it’s delish.
Let’s begin by preparing and chopping all ingredients. Add the broccoli, kale, red onion, cucumber, grapes, almonds and quinoa to a large bowl.
In a small bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, vegan mayo, agave, lemon juice, poppy seeds, salt and pepper. Stir with a spoon or whisk and add the dressing to the vegetable mix. Stir until combined.
Eat as a salad or roll up in a tortilla for a healthy sandwich. This recipe makes eight 1/2-cup servings.
