Asian Broccoli Salad with Peanut Sauce

This is a unique broccoli salad without the usual mayonnaise base.  The peanut dressing is slightly spicy with a little bit of sweetness, which pairs nicely with the broccoli.

Prep time:  10 minutes

Cook time: 5-8 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1 Peanut Starter pack
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 ounces broccoli florets, about 4-5 cups
  • 1 cup frozen edamame or peas, thawed
  • 1 red onion, small diced
  • ½ cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • ½ cup peanuts


    1. Place the contents of the Peanut Starter pack and 1 cup water into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. 
    2. In a small saucepan, cook the peanut sauce mixture over medium-high heat whisking frequently until bubbly and thickened, about 3-5 minutes.  
    3. Heat a large pot of water over high heat until it is boiling. Add the broccoli florets and cook for 30-60 seconds. This will blanch and soften the broccoli creating a bright green color. Drain in a colander and run cold water over the broccoli to stop the cooking process.  
    4. In a medium-sized bowl, place the broccoli, peanut sauce, and remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly and serve.  


    • If you enjoy extra spice, add a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce or ½ teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
    • Feel free to use peas instead of edamame
