My Favortie Broccoli Salad

This is by far one of my favorite hearty salad recipes and it’s perfect for warmer weather since it’s served chilled. If you make it a few hours ahead of time make sure to toss the avocado seed into the bowl too, it will help keep the avocados from browning!


2 heads of broccoli
1 large avocado
1 tomato
1/4 cup diced red onion
3 carrots
 1 lime
dash of salt
Adding bacon would also be a nice touch 😉


  1. Wash, cut and lightly steam the broccoli. Steam it just long enough to become slightly tender.
  2. Cut the de-seeded tomato into cubes and the carrots into circles while the broccoli is steaming.
  3. Rinse the steamed broccoli under cold water to make sure it stops cooking.
  4. Toss the broccoli, carrots, tomato and red onion in a large bowl with a dash of salt and the juice of half a lime.
  5. Cut the avocado into cubes, add to the salad and very gently toss the salad while adding the juice from the rest of the lime.
  6. Add just a sprinkle of salt on top

If you’re preparing this a few hours in advance I recommend storing the salad in the fridge and waiting as long as possible to  cut and add the avocado.
