Raw broccoli salad

My husband has a prejudice against broccoli, but I kept trying to cook healthy and broccoli is included in menu. When my husband tried this salad, he exclaimed: “Who invented to cook the broccoli?”. No, really, raw broccoli is  crunchy and very good with bright sauces. I used sweet pepper and carrot in my salad in this time.
Recipe adapted from many similar (but it was difficult to find a salad without mayonnaise), the sesame sauce recipe adapted from Eating Out Loud with my additions.


1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
1/2 sweet pepper, red or yellow, cut into strips
1 medium carrot, cut into strips

Sesame Dressing
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp corn syrup
2 teaspoons soy sauce (use gluten-free if you need)
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp granulated garlic

Add all of the salad ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl with lid, then pour over the salad. Toss to combine and allow to set in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
