Broccoli salad with cranberries, pineapple and peanut dressing


About this recipe

by: Dawn

Broccoli - Looks good, tastes good and does us good. A green all-round talent. The recipe has an Asian influence, but you can replace the Asian ingredients with those you have at home. Rice vinegar - White wine vinegar etc..



For the salad

  • 2 small or 1 large broccoli head
  • 2 Mini cucumbers
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1 small tin or 2-3 fresh slices of pineapple
  • Optional:
  • 1 pckt. - pine nuts
  • 1/2 white onion, finely sliced
  • If you like some fresh coriander

For the dressing

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2EL rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or a little more syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil, roasted if possible. (Olive oil works, too)
  • 2cm piece ginger peeled, grated
  • Salt


The dressing, cranberries and pineapple stimulate many taste senses and add some glamour to the vegetables! Cranberries deserve a page to themselves, because they are real superfruits. List successful. Cranberry a superfruit


Broccoli aids the immune system with a lot of vitamin C, supposedly protects against diabetes and cancer. Cranberries are not only said to have a beneficial effect on the urinary organs, but also to slow down the aging process. Pineapple contains a lot of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. I could go on with the ingredients, but I think it has become clear: This recipe is healthy - and tasty!

Step by step guide

Step 1

Mix peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar (syrup), oil, ginger and 2 tablespoons of water until the liquid is homogeneous. Add some salt to taste.

Cut the broccoli heads into slices and put them together in a bowl with sliced cucumber. Season with salt and vinegar and mix carefully.

Step 4

Lay the salad on a plate, pour the dressing over it.

Step 5

Arrange cranberries, pineapple pieces, onion rings and pine nuts on top of it. Cut the coriander into strips and sprinkle over the top.
