What I love most about this recipe for Citrus Broccoli Salad (beside’s the dressing) is all the crunch this salad offers; broccoli, snow peas, radishes and fresh pineapple for starters, then throw in some sunflower seeds and you have a nice crunchy salad with a light & fresh dressing.
Feel free to swap out the veggies or the sunflower seeds in this salad. I wouldn’t hesitate using cashews in place of the sunflower seeds. You could also add in matchstick carrots, celery or kohlrabi in place of the radishes or snow peas.
I like the orange juice in the dressing, really gives the salad a nice punch of citrus and goes well with the vegetables.
