free from: gluten and dairy (vegan friendly)
In honor of Veganuary, I’m trying to incorporate more vegan meals into my life. This vegan broccoli salad is easy to make and a crowd pleaser! I’ve brought it to multiple gatherings and they had no idea it was vegan and gluten free.
The ingredients are simple. For the vegan cheese I used Good Planet.
I highly recommend making this a day in advance if possible, the longer it sits the more flavorful it is.
This recipe makes 6-8 servings of Vegan Broccoli Salad:
- 2 heads broccoli, chopped
- 1/2 cup craisins
- 1 1/2 cup vegan cheddar, shredded
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/8 cup sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp pepper
- 2/3 cup vegan mayo
- 1 tsp lemon juice
In a medium bowl, combine broccoli, craisins, cheese and onion. In a separate bowl, make your dressing by whisking the sugar, salt, pepper, mayo and lemon juice.
Pour dressing into first bowl and mix until thoroughly coated. Store in fridge. As mentioned, this tastes better the longer the dressing can soak in (few hours to a day).
