Curried Broccoli Salad

by lisa | 7 September 2013 10:02

My husband said I should call this ‘Satay Salad’ because the sauce tastes like the peanut satay sauce that goes with chicken. I’m pretty sure I’ll tweek it in a few days to make satay because now that he mentioned it, I’m craving it. This is super adaptable and you could add in anything you wanted. I tossed in some pumpkin seeds, but it would also be delicious with cashew nuts. I think it would be really good with a handful of raisins thrown in, which I probably would have done if I had had any on hand. I almost ran out to get some raisins, but then I would have had a bunch of leftover raisins after making the salad. Leftover, lonely raisins means I would have had to make cookies. And then I would have to eat those cookies. Nope, buying raisins is not a good idea 🙂

Ingredients

For the Sauce

Putting it together

  1. Mix all ingredients for the sauce together in a bowl until smooth. It should be a thick sauce (not too runny) but you can adjust the thickness by adjusting the amount of coconut milk you add in.
  2. Throw the chopped broccoli, grated carrots and any nuts and raisins (optional add-in) in a bowl together.
  3. Pour sauce over the broccoli and toss to coat.
  4. Refrigerate for awhile before serving.
