Broccoli Salad with Peanut Sauce

Author Samah Dada


  • 1-2 heads of broccoli
  • 5 TBSP Peanut butter
  • 1-2 TBSP Soy sauce (I used tamari which is the GF alternative)
  • 1/4 TSP Toasted sesame oil
  • 1 TBSP Rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Edamame (I used crunchy, roasted)
  • 1/3 Peanuts
  • Black sesame seeds for garnish


For the broccoli:

  1. Boil broccoli for 1 minute and drain. Stir in a bit of salt and pepper. You can also stir fry or roast the broccoli in the oven if you prefer.

For the sauce:

  1. Mix together peanut butter, tamari (or soy sauce), sesame oil, rice vinegar until smooth. You will need to add warm water to the sauce to thin, one teaspoon at a time until you reach desired consistency. Feel free to add 1 TBSP honey for a bit of a sweeter touch to the peanut sauce (this is more traditional, I chose to leave the honey out). Pour over broccoli and enjoy warm or chilled. Also note that the sauce can absolutely be to taste - if you want to add a bit more soy sauce or vinegar, do so! Enjoy!
