Directions for Broccoli Salad Recipe
Chop the broccoli florets into ½-inch pieces and any remaining stems into ¼-inch dice.
In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, mayo, mustard, maple syrup, garlic, and salt. Now, add the broccoli, onions, and cranberries and toss to coat.
Place the almonds and pepitas on the baking sheet, toss with the tamari, maple syrup, smoked paprika, and spread into a thin layer—Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes (they’ll get crispier as they sit).
Toss the almonds and pepitas into the salad, reserving a few to sprinkle on top. Adjust the taste if necessary and serve.
