Vegan Mandarin Orange Broccoli Salad

Mandarin Orange Broccoli Salad Ingredients

The fixings in this vegan broccoli salad are some of our favorites! This healthy broccoli salad has the perfect combination of sweet and savory and has the perfect amount of crunch!

  • Broccoli- We decided to roast the broccoli for this vegan Asian broccoli salad to give the salad a delicious roasted flavor. It’s so delicious!

  • Olive Oil- Olive oil is a great source of healthy fats and it gives any salad a great flavor!

  • Mandarin Oranges- Not only do mandarin oranges bring me back to childhood, but they are a great sweet addition to this broccoli salad. They give you a little sweetness and vitamin C!

  • Raisins- Raisins keep you regular and are high in healthy sugars to give you a little boost of energy throughout the day.

  • Red Onion- Red onions are nutrient-dense! They pack a ton of vitamins are a low-carbohydrate vegetable. They give great flavor to any salad. If you don’t like raw red onions, try sauteing the red onion before adding it to the salad.

  • Slivered Almonds- Feel free to choose any nut for this broccoli salad. We chose slivered almonds because they offer a crunch and they are antioxidant-rich!

  • Sesame Seeds- Sesame seeds are a great source of plant protein and you just can’t beat the soft, yet crunchy texture they offer to any salad. If you are out of sesame seeds, try replacing them with hemp hearts. They offer a similar texture!
