Recipe Video


  • 4 cups broccoli florets, chopped
  • 1/4 medium red onion, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 medium roasted red pepper
  • 1/4 cup artichoke hearts, chopped - in water, drained
  • 3 tbsp walnuts, chopped

Lemon Tahini Dressing


  • Chop the broccoli into bite size pieces and add the broccoli to a large bowl.
  • Chop the red onion into a small dice so that it easily incorporates without being over powering. Add to the broccoli florets in the bowl.
  • Drain the water/liquid from the roasted red pepper and artichoke hearts. Chop into bite size pieces. Add to the broccoli and red onion.
  • Chop the walnuts into small enough pieces that they are easy to distribute in the salad but not so small that they lose their crunch.
  • Make the dressing and stir it into the salad, combining well.
  • Serve cold or at room temperature

Lemon Tahini Dressing

  • Combine the tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt in a jar. Stir well to combine. See post for instructions if too thick or too thin.



This salad should last 3-4 days in the fridge after the dressing is added, so it’s perfect to make ahead of time!
To make this a full meal, simply add your favorite protein (pre-cooked chicken, shrimp, salmon, hemp hearts, chickpeas, lentils or tofu). 
If you don't have tahini, you can also use almond butter or sunflower seed butter
