Soy Sesame Broccoli Salad Recipe

16 ounce bunch of fresh broccoli, washed
2 tbsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce (see note)
2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
sesame seeds

Cut tops off of the broccoli and separate into bite size pieces.  Peel the fibrous outer layer off of the broccoli stems and cut the soft inner part into slices 1/2" thick.  Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the broccoli to the boiling water.  Cook for 2 minutes or till broccoli just turns a bright green color.  Immediately drain the broccoli and rinse under cold water to stop cooking process.  You can also plunge it into ice water if that is easier for you.  Allow broccoli to drain.  While the broccoli is draining; combine the oil, soy sauce and vinegar in a small bowl.  Whisk to combine.  Place the broccoli in a bowl with a tight sealing lid or a zip lock bag.  Pour the marinade over the broccoli and toss to combine.  Place the broccoli in the refrigerator for minimum of two hours, shaking the broccoli and marinade around several times.  Before serving sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds. 

Note:  Soy sauce does contain wheat.  It is a source of gluten.  If you are trying to avoid gluten, use tamari instead of soy sauce.  Also, even using the low sodium soy sauce, you have enough salt that none needs to be added.

  1. I personally don't like broccoli but it is full of nutrients so I always keep it as an ingredient of my regular diet. You can also take help from the natural ingredients to keep yourself healthy and fit for long in the form of juices or fruit or vegetables as whole. Green vegetables and fruits are filled with vitamins and minerals that are necessary for your vital organs. You can also go from the Tahitian Noni Juice so as to maintain good health and it can help in diseases like arthritis,blood pressure, diabetes, skin disorders etc.
