Broccoli Avocado Salad {Raw, Gluten Free}

raw broccoli saladThis is a wonderfully fast and delightful lunch. In keeping the broccoli raw – you keep in lots more nutrients and you give that salad the necessary crunch that is needed.

This is sure to fill up your tummy and satisfy those cravings. Throw this together before you walk out the door in the morning, and you are set for a low-fat, highly nutritious lunch.

You will need: 1 head of broccoli (chopped into small pieces), 1 handful of almonds, ½ large avocado (cubed), 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard, 1 cap full of olive oil and 1 cap full of apple cider vinegar.

First, chop up your broccoli into tiny little pieces. Remember you are eating this as a salad – so keep that in mind while dicing these green baby trees.

Next cut open an avocado and use half of it {preferably the side without the seed}. Use the seed side tomorrow for lunch {keeping the seed in helps the flesh stay fresh an additional day!}

Add your Dijon mustard to the broccoli bowl and stir. Then dump in those avocado pieces. Splash in the oil and vinegar and mix again. Lastly, add your handful of almonds to the top of your salad.

Enjoy this refreshing raw salad! Your body will thank you.
