Broccoli Salad with Sunflower Seeds & Cranberries is a lightened up version of a classic American recipe. And it’s vegan and gluten free. It’s perfect for lunch or as a side at picnics and barbecues.
Broccoli salad is traditionally very fattening with tons of mayonnaise and bacon.
In my opinion, it kind of defeats the purpose of eating broccoli!
But this version contains only a few ingredients.
And you don’t even need to turn on the stove!
I like to serve this Broccoli Salad with Sunflower Seeds & Cranberries as a side dish or combine it with a couple of other salads.
In addition, it’s great with a simple fruit salad.
Combining a few salads makes a complete lunch, which I like to pack in a stainless steel Bento Box for taking on the go.
Moreover, you can make a double batch of Broccoli Salad for a crowd or to bring to a potluck.
And perhaps you’re looking for other salad makeovers.
I love this Roasted Chickpea Fattoush Salad.
And this Vegan Curried Chicken Salad.
And don’t forget an Italian Chopped Salad.
There are so many delicious salad remakes like Broccoli Salad with Sunflower Seeds & Cranberries!
What I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make.
First I separate the broccoli into florets. I like to cut them small.
Then I place the broccoli in a salad bowl and add the sunflower seeds and dried cranberries.
The dressing is made by combining vegan mayo, apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper.
It’s simple and flavorful.
After the dressing is mixed in, I let the salad chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Then it’s time to eat!
I love that the broccoli stays crunchy.
