This crisp and super fresh veggie-packed salad is perfect for the summer. I like to make a big batch and keep it in the fridge. It keeps well for a few days, with the flavours intensifying each day. Enjoy it as a side salad or as your main course on warm days.

My recipe uses little pasta to keep the simple-carb count a bit lower. I added chickpeas to replace them because I find they have a similar texture. You could add more pasta if you like.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 5 Tbsp tahini
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 oz dry pasta
  • 8 cups broccoli florets
  • 3 zucchini
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 4 Tbsp hulled pumpkin seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 fresh basil leaves

Steps:

  1. Begin by cooking your pasta to package directions. To make the lemon tahini sauce, whisk the tahini, water, lemon juice, lemon zest and salt in a bowl. Grate in the garlic cloves and mix. Set aside so flavours develop.
  2. To blanch the broccoli, bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Drop in broccoli florets and allow to cook for a few minutes. Drain and dump into a bowl of ice water for 20 seconds, then drain again.
  3. Cut zucchinis in half vertically, then thinly slice. Cut the grape tomatoes in half.
  4. Place all the veggies and cooked pasta into a big bowl. Add chickpeas.
  5. Stir in lemon tahini sauce.
  6. Tear in basil leaves, sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, and mix well.

Thanks for posting this. I love this salad but don't purchase it very often at the deli as it is way too expensive.

was way too much sugar for me . . . cut in half, was still too much; dressing was much thicker than what I get at my WalMart, but I have to chop theirs up more so I can eat it since I don't have any teeth. Thanks, it;s a start though.

Broccoli Salad

Hi crazyliblady, because as good as this salad tastes I live alone, have a small appetite and am disabled. Perhaps next time I make it for a get together, I'll simply hide some away instead of praying there is some left over, eh? ;-) I love cooking and am really good at it but unless it's a recipe that can be frozen in individual containers or ingredients can easily be reduced and eaten within three days or sharing with company, I simply don't make it.

Get ready to double or triple this one, it's THAT good! Anything that makes me say "more please" to broccoli is a good thing. Note that the broccoli wilts down some resulting in less than you start with.
