This is my homemade twist on the traditional broccoli salad. Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) give this salad a nutty, chewy-crunch, and the light, bright-tasting dressing accents the hearty veggie mix. A favorite at picnics and potlucks!

Great way to use up some fresh broccoli and cauliflower. The dressing on this is delicious. Although I'm not sure what coconut palm sugar is so I just used regular granulated sugar. I didn't have the pepita seeds on hand so I subbed sunflower seeds. The next time I make this I will have the pumpkins seeds for the recipe. Served this with grilled Hawaiian brat patties 'Summer Corn Salad' and 'Greek Deviled Eggs' both from AR. Thanks Sarah O for sharing your recipe. We really enjoyed it. Read More

This is good! I like broccoli salad anyway so it was very similar. I didn't use pumpkin seeds as I couldn't find them in the supermarket and prefer sunflower seeds so I used those for the crunch. Everything else stayed the same. Delicious! Read More

Delicious vegetable salad. The red pepper add a wonderful sweetness. I used agave syrup instead of sugar and I didn't have any unsweetened yogurt on hand so substituted sour cream. Delicious! Read More

Great recipe that holds up well for pot lucks. I couldn't find pepitas either so just used a trail mix that also had cranberries with nuts and sunflower seeds. I upped the mustard a little and then for my husband only added red pepper flakes. Very good! Read More

Great side salad! Nice way to use some fresh veggies. Used regular sugar and sour cream instead of yogurt just because it s what I had on hand. Added matchstick carrots and used slivered almonds. It was a hit! Read More

A very nice recipe. I added bacon to make it even better! Also lightly blanched broccoli and cauliflower to bring out the flavors. Read More
