Broccoli Carrot Salad is a pretty and nutrition side salad you can make in about 20 minutes. The vinaigrette dressing is light and flavorful.
I found this Broccoli Carrot Salad in one of my favorite cookbooks, Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special. The only thing I changed was to add some red onion to it and I used “lite” soy sauce. It’s tasty and has good vitamins, protein and fiber, while also being gluten free and vegan. The closer your food is to a naturally grown food source, the better it is for you.
Gluten Free and Vegan
When I attend a potluck, I generally bring one or two dishes I know I can eat since I don’t eat gluten or dairy. My health issues sometimes make it hard to eat anywhere except at home. Do you have any dietary restrictions? How do you handle eating in a restaurant or ordering carryout?
What You Need
You will need measuring cups and spoons, garlic mincer, vegetable peeler, microplane grater, knife, cutting board, vegetable steamer, wire whisk, and bowls. Do yourself a favor and buy a good set of pans.
