Moroccan-Inspired Broccoli Salad |

Before I went Paleo, pretty much the only way you could get me to eat broccoli was to drench it in ranch dressing or cheese. But “getting healthy” opened my eyes to a whole new world of vegetable dishes. And I do mean world.

What’s kept me going on the autoimmune protocol for the past few years has been my passion for adapting ethnic dishes from all over the globe – or better yet, finding ones that don’t need to be adapted! – to keep things interesting. This particular broccoli salad, served raw and cold, is an adaptation of a Moroccan recipe using tomatoes, peppers, and cream. My version adds carrots and coconut and gets just a hint of heat from ginger.

    Thanks for the recipe! I love these kinds of ingredients. Quick question: when you ask for coconut cream are you asking for only the thick stuff from the can or the whole thing (water included)? Thanks!

    • Christina Feindel says

      Yes, the thick stuff that forms when a can is refrigerated. 🙂

    Looks delicious! What do you serve this with? Or do you have it on its own as a meal?

    I see a lot of recipes that call for coconut cream. I want to be sure I know where that is coming from? you pulling the cream off the top of coconut milk? Please advise. Thank you!

    Great recipe! I did not have coconut cream or green onion on hand. I substituted greater amounts of oil & ACV, and used finely chopped Vidalia onion instead. Let it sit for an hour stirring every 15 minutes and it was delicious.
