Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 1 Cup Raw cashews, soaked in water overnight (140g)
  • 6 Tbsp Water
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice, (don't use from the bottle)
  • Zest 1 whole medium lemon
  • 1 1/4 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 tsp Fresh garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3/4 tsp Dried basil
  • 3/4 tsp Dried thyme
  • Pinch of pepper

For the salad:

  • 5 Cups Broccoli, chopped into bite-sized florets
  • 1 1/2 Cups Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 Cup Pitted Kalamata olives, halved
  • 6 Tbsp Red onion, diced
  • 1 Large cucumber, halved and thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Drain the water from the cashews and place them into a high-powered food processor.  Add in all the remaining dressing ingredients and start the blender on the lowest speed, slowly increasing the speed into it's at the highest speed.  
  • Blend all the ingredients until smooth and creamy. This will take a good 2-4 minutes and you'll need to stop and scrape down the sides every so often.
  • Add all of the salad ingredients into a very large bowl.  Add in the dressing and toss until all the vegetables are evenly coated.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at LEAST 1 hour (this helps the broccoli absorb all the flavor) or up to overnight.
  • Once chilled, taste and add and salt and pepper if needed. Then, DEVOUR.
