Ingredients for salad:

  • Broccoli (small sized florets)- 1 cup
  • Almonds (soaked overnight,peeled)- 1/4 cup

For dressing:

  • Cashews- 1/2 cup
  • Back pepper powder- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt- to taste
  • Lemon juice- from 1 big lemon
  • Red chilli flakes-for garnishing.



  • Boil cashews in sufficient water for few minutes.
  • Drain the water and grind cashews with all other ingredients of the dressing.
  • Add water little by little, and grind till it forms a smooth creamy paste.
  • Transfer it to a small container, sprinkle some red chilli flakes. This vegan dressing can be used as a substitute for mayonnaise.
  • Boil the broccoli florets in salt water for 2 minutes. Once they are fork tender, transfer them immediately to ice cold water. This helps retain their colour and also prevents them from over cooking. Drain out all the water from broccoli and transfer it to a bowl.
  • Add over night soaked and peeled almonds to the bowl.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of dressing to the salad.
  • Adjust salt and seasoning.
  • Serve chilled.
