High Protein Broccoli Salad

Recipe by Tiana Pollari






A delicious broccoli salad that packs a punch! The broccoli in this salad will provide roughly 6 grams of protein, not to mention a high source of glucosinolates. These are compounds that may help reduce the risk of cancer. But that’s not all… The edamame in this salad provides a whopping 17 grams of protein to boot. Who needs meat?


  1. 1

    Combine the broccoli, edamame, onion and dried cranberries into a large bowl and toss so that all the ingredients are well mixed and set aside

  2. 2

    In a separate bowl, combine the tahini, maple syrup, lemon juice, sea salt, garlic, olive oil and water. Stir until well combined

  3. 3

    Pour dressing onto the salad and stir until dressing has covered the salad completely

  4. 4

    Garnish with sliced almonds

  5. 5

    Substitutions: Sub peas for edamame. Sub avocado oil for olive oil. Sub honey for maple syrup. Omit sliced almonds to make nut free.
