Cauliflower, Broccoli & Sesame Salad

Cauliflower, Broccoli & Sesame Salad


  • 1 cup raw pepitas*

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • kosher salt or sea salt

  • 1 small red onion or a couple of shallots

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons Walden Farms Honey Balsamic Vinegar dressing*

  • 1 head cauliflower

  • 1 head broccoli

  • 1 bunch (about 6 stalks) scallions

  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted or not

  • 1 jalapeño or other hot chili, minced

  • 1 Cup fresh raspberries 

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus a few more tablespoons to taste

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • red pepper flakes to taste (optional)


1.Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Spread pepitas on a sheetpan, toss with 1 tablespoon (you could probably get away with using less) olive oil and a pinch of salt. Spread out and toast for 7 to 10 minutes or until you hear them starting to pop. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
2. Meanwhile, dice the onions or shallots and place in a small bowl. Cover with three tablespoons of vinegar and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
3. Using the slicer attachment to your food processor, slice up the cauliflower and broccoli The final yield is about 8 loosely packed cups.
4. Place sliced cauliflower and broccoli in a large bowl. Thinly slice the scallions (white and light green parts) and add to the bowl. Add sesame seeds, minced jalapeño and raspberries to the bowl. Add cooled pepitas and macerated onions (with the vinegar) to the bowl. Add olive oil to bowl. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and toss well. Taste. If the jalapeño has provided enough heat, omit the red pepper flakes; if not, add pepper flakes to taste. Add more salt if necessary. Add more olive oil and vinegar as necessary: I added two more tablespoons olive oil and one more tablespoon vinegar. I used a whole teaspoon of salt. Toss again and taste.
