Strawberry Broccoli Salad with Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing will be one of the best salads you make this season! Its the perfect easy, make ahead, texture packed side dish or potluck favorite!
I think I found my new lettuce. Seriously, the texture of the broccoli in this salad is swoon worthy – and it stays crunchy for days! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tossed a salad (because I have to add dressing to my salads for photo shoots) and can’t eat all of it because it gets soggy – but not this broccoli salad – it is a texture lover’s dream. Aside from the broccoli, this Strawberry Broccoli Salad is loaded with crisp pears and apples, crunchy sunflower seeds, sweet strawberries and dried cranberries, creamy avocado, salty feta and if you are feeling extra indulgent, then sprinkle in some caramelized pecans – the explosion of flavors and textures gets me giddy!
The dynamic fresh blend all gets married by Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing that’s creamy yet light and refreshing, sweet and tangy and just what this broccoli salad needs to become your new favorite summer side.
What I especially love about this Strawberry Broccoli Salad, aside from the fact that it takes just minutes to throw together (seriously so simple, look at the directions!), is that it actually tastes better if prepped a little in advance to chill, so you aren’t chopping and stressing at the last minute with somewhere to be or guests arriving. Instead, toss and chill, and you get to chill out…
Strawberry Broccoli Salad. The salad of your crunchy, creamy, sweet, refreshing, tangy dreams.
