Raw Asian Broccoli Salad Recipe

This clean eating raw Asian broccoli salad makes a very filling and nutritious meal!

I’ve been meaning to do a salad like this for a very long time. But for some reason, it was just one of those recipes that always intimidated me. I didn’t think I could get the flavors just right (for my liking, anyway). Asian flavors have always been a little tough for me. So many of them include the use of sugar and items that I don’t usually buy. But I finally found a way, and I think you’re going to love this one!

A white bowl filled with Clean Eating Raw Asian Broccoli Salad and topped with brown soy dressing and sesame seeds sits on a brown background with chopsticks resting next to the bowl.

Even though I’ve loosened up just a bit on the Paleo-style eating plan, this one fits the guidelines nicely. It’s gluten-free, vegetarian, and meat-eaters can always add chicken for a nicely balanced meal. This salad is a great way to get a big serving of veggies in for the day. And we all know how important those veggies are!

    You are reading my mind. I just talked to my husband last night about a slaw recipe. I had seen one that had a Vidalia vinegrette in the store that was being sampled. It wasn’t clean so I thought I should try to make it myself. This is a start on the Asian side.

    Can’t wait to try it.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      I hope you enjoy it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This sounds delicious! A nice healthy alternative to steamed broccoli everyday! I think I might toss in some almond slivers too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Alexandra says:

    Oohh!! This looks delish! Are coconut aminos any different than regular Braggs aminos?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Alexandra – Yes, braggs is made from soy. Coconut aminos are made from coconut.

  4. Yum, can’t wait to try it!

  5. I suppose I could sub peanut butter??

  6. Jan @ Sprouts n Squats says:

    Yum this salad looks really good. Love the use of nut butter in the dressing

  7. Looks good! I will have to try it soon.

  8. I know you are saying equal parts but are we talking tablespoons, 1/4 cup, 1/2 c? Just to give me an idea?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Depends on how big you want your salad. For 1 person, you’d probably be fine with 1/2 cup of each.

  9. Made this tonight w/spinach leaves and all the leftover veggies and chicken we had on hand and this was amazing !!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Niki – Glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. hi, is it possible to get the grated consistency using a food processor? thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Wendy – If you have the grater attachment, yes.

  11. Had this for lunch today. I mixed in some shredded rotisserie chicken. The dressing is amazing.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Clare – Glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. My family loved it! the only thing I added sliced beef strips….awesome lunch. Thanks.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jennifer – My pleasure!

  13. I found that using an equal portion of soy sauce makes it too salty. If you’re using soy sauce, use half of a portion and add a little bit extra in until you get the flavor you want, otherwise the salty soy flavor masks the rest of the flavors a bit too much.

    Also, consider adding a dash of ginger. It was quite nice ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashley – Thanks for the feedback! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Do you recommend using a mandolin?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jen – Anything that makes the job easier gets my vote! I just didn’t own one at the time.
