Broccoli and Sweet Potato Salad

I really love fresh Broccoli and Sweet Potato Salad. Only a few time ago I discovered that I can use fresh broccoli and uncooked sweet potato into a salad, which is totally great as in this way all those good vitamins don’t get lost in the cooking process.

This broccoli and sweet potato salad is really tasty and perfect for lunch or dinner. It is by far one of the best salads we’ve tried so far.

    I cant wait to make this! I was curious if the broccoli or sweet potato should be cooked? I am going to assume the sweet potato does but what about the broccoli?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Broccoli and sweet potato are not cooked, the sweet potato is good as it is too, like carrot. Can be eat either cooked or fresh. Just make sure to cut both in small pieces.

    I steamed the veg for a minute or so to take the edge off. It was still crunchy. I also swapped the olive oil for sesame oil and added a squeeze of lemon to the dressing.
