Weekly Veggie: Rustic Pea Salad

How about one more recipe before the sun sets on this sunny day and very busy day in "Weekly Veggie" land...
This Salad was a part of my Father's Day outdoor BBQ bash - and it was a hit!
Rustic Pea Salad - with Cauliflower & Broccoli
Step 1. Salad Components:
2 c Peas 
2 c Cauliflower - chopped small
2 c Broccoli - chopped small
 --- set aside your salad components in a mixing bowl.
Step 2. Salad Sauce:
(This sauce resembles my Caraway Cottage Cheeze, slightly tweaked)
1 c Zucchini - peeled and cubed
1 c Macadamia nuts
4 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp Lemon juice
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp dried Dill weed
2 tsp Ground Caraway seed
1 tsp Garlic Granules
2 tsp (heaping) Medjool Date paste
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
1/2 c Water
---Puree the above ingredients until creamy. Add the sauce to your Salad components and toss/mix evenly.
I'm a little bummed that I didn't get as much done as I would've liked (recipe-wise) with this week's "Weekly Veggie". I seemed to have a lot more kitchen "fails" then usual, hence the lack of activity on the recipe front. But it's okay --- the next two weeks are going to be very exciting, and I'll be making an announcement tomorrow on what you can expect to see and read about. I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend/Father's day, and thank you SO much for stopping by!

  1. I am totally making this (approximately) for tonight's dinner.

  2. EEE! Thanks M! Let me know how it works for you :))


  3. Oh my goodness, this looks incredible!

  4. It was delicious S. and I think it will work in to the 'meat and potatoes' family food plan without too many snarls from the more carnivorous ones...I'm looking forward to being able to have more veggie things around for easy incorporation into the menu (They'll never know what hit 'em, right? especially we're heading into Wimbeldon, etc.

    Thanks for everything good!
