From the name alone this seems like an unbelievably simple salad to make. And you know what? It is!

Tired of serving a plain steamed green veggie every night, I decided to jazz up some broccoli with a bit of added color, texture and a sweet sauce. At first I wondered if the kids would just eat the edamame, almonds and cranberries and avoid the broccoli, but they ate every bite and ended up asking for seconds.

I usually have all of the ingredients to make this dish on hand as they’re some of my staples. If you don’t have them, they’re worth picking up for whenever you want to enjoy this easy, yet impressive combination. Since you get a protein, a vegetable and a fruit, it’s like a healthy trifecta!

  1. This was delicious. My three year old loved it too.
    I used nonfat plain Greek yogurt, instead of mayo.

  6. Would this work without steaming the broccoli? I use your recipes every day, sometimes multiple times a day. My husband and I have a 5 year old, 3 year old, and 6 month old. You are my go to girl! Thank you!!

  7. I like steaming it because it makes it easier to eat and digest, but I think raw broccoli would be okay!

  8. Since mayonnaise generally has egg, I think the egg free label might be misleading for some people. But as far as I can tell, this recipe is dairy free. Maybe switch the egg free for dairy free?
