Souplantation broccoli salad from Cinnamon-Spice & Everything Nice

 If you are willing to experiment with your favorite flavors and want to combine veggies with fruit, broccoli salad is the perfect thing to start with. Broccoli is that kind of vegetable that goes perfectly well will dried cranberries and with raisins. I have seen broccoli combined also with fresh grapes. That is also an interesting combination, but if you are new in this whole game, which I call “veggie-fruit salads”, then I recommend you begin with dried fruit and nuts.
Here are some other beautiful combinations that are proven to taste super yummy:
  • Shredded carrot and pomegranate
  • Shredded carrot and shredded apple
  • Shredded carrot and orange pieces
  • Green salad and pomegranate, apple, orange, pineapple, pear.

These are just a couple of examples for pretty good mixes of veggies and fruit. Definitely try some of those, you won’t regret, I promise! 🙂

But now let’s get back to this Souplantation broccoli salad, shown by Cinnamon-Spice & Everything Nice. The photograph is just so perfectly presented, that you can fall in love with the salad without even tasting it. I think the combination of bacon, baked nuts, fruit, crunchy broccoli and fatty mayonnaise dressing couldn’t be more amazing. Most of us prefer salads, which are something more than just veggies, tossed with oil. Am I right? Adding something special to the vegetables makes a big difference. Not just you don’t leave the table hungry, but you also enjoy a really beautiful table with all these colors in the salad. This Souplantation broccoli salad is another prove, that the richer the salad is, the better it looks and the more satisfying it is for the one who eats it.

Some quinoa wouldn’t hurt this salad, I think. In my opinion quinoa goes great with broccoli and red onion. The more interesting ingredients in the Souplantation broccoli salad, the better the end-result! So really, experiment in the kitchen! Cinnamon-Spice & Everything Nice did show an amazing salad recipe, but that doesn’t mean you can’t improvise. Try to do something different from the recipe. For example: Why not adding some red pepper instead of red onion? Or why don’t you add some grilled chicken instead of the bacon? There are so many ways you can upgrade this Souplantation broccoli salad. Just do it your way and have fun!

I made a quick summary of the recipe, so that you can see the very basics. Don’t forget to visit the original page, which I linked somewhere above in order to find more detailed information.
