Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 3/4 Cup Roasted, Salted Cashews soaked in water overnight (105g)
  • 5 1/2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 tsp Yellow curry powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp Honey (or agave for vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Pinch of pepper

For the salad:

  • 4 Cups Broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces (230g)
  • 1/2 Cup Cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Red onion, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Dried unsweetened cranberries, roughly chopped (28g)
  • 2 Slices Cooked Bacon, diced (omit for vegan)
  • 2 Tbsp Sunflower seeds (15g)
  • 2 Tbsp Roasted salted Cashews, chopped (12g)

Instructions

  • Drain the cashews and place into a small food processor (mine is 3 cups.)  Add the remaining dressing ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides often. This will take a few minutes so be patient. 
  • In a large bowl combine the broccoli, red onion, cilantro,  bacon and cranberries. Stir until evenly mixed. 
  • Stir in the dressing until the salad is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour to let the flavors develop.
  • Just before serving, mix in the sunflower seeds and cashews and DEVOUR
