I am making this recipe
Broccoli and cranberry salad
1 large bunch of broccoli, broken up into bite-sized bits ( I ran this through my food processor) You can make the broccoli bits as big or as small as you'd like.
3/4 C dried cranberries
1 C raw soaked almonds blended with water and herbs in blender(I added some water and the juice of 1 lemon) (original recipe called for Veganaise)
3/4 C cashews
red onion, diced optional(ran this through my food processor)
Then I just put everything in a bowl and mixed it up.

Now, my question is what type of herbs do I use with the blended almonds??
Thank you to anyone that can help me in a pinch!
I need to have this made by tonight for tomorrow afternoon.
I edited this recipe to how I actually ended up making it.

I would try lemonjuice and thyme. I love lemonjuice with blended nuts.
Good Luck, send us a picture when you have made it :p

Thank you SO SO SO much for your suggestion.
I took this recipe today and it was a HUGE success!
Everyone loved it and my Pastor's wife wanted to take the rest home!
Several people asked me for the recipe!
I will make this again for sure.
I did not add any herbs to the almond/water mixture, just one lemon and used a whole red onion in the salad.
Will make this for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Pam this sounds so good! Thanks for sharing it for us all. I want to try it. Did the broccolli make your stomach hurt? I was just worried about the brocolli, you know, with all the sulphur it can give ya gas, and with the nuts, wondered if it was too heavy on the stomach. It really sounds good and I do want to try it, possibly for Thanksgiving and Christmas too. Didn't mean to sound negative about it, I just wanted to know how you feel after you eat it?

I actually felt a little stuffed, but that was due to eating to much of that, grapes and Alissa's date nut torte.
I didn't have a problem with this dish and it botherthing my tummy.
I will post a picture after I get a tiny nap!
We don't have church tonight since it was our church's anniversary and we had a late afternoon.
So, after I get up, I'll post a picture of this dish!

Where did you find dried cranberries that did not have any sweetener on them? It seems all I can find is ones with sugar or sweetner..... UGH! I have broccoli at home too and this sounds SO good!

I found my cranberries at the health food store, they were sweetened with apple juice.

This looks so wonderful - thanks for sharing!

Yummy, Pam! This looks so good! I want to try it two ways. With the broccolli and a variation I thought might work which would be to substitute the broccolli for cauliflower. I read cauliflower takes on whatever flavors are in the dish. Thanks for the pic, it looks delicious.

Hey, that's a great idea with making this dish with cauliflower. If you make it let us know how it tastes and post a picture!! :) I want to try this now with your version! :)

Okay, I did it! I tried this recipe cuz it looked good! Plus, I had two heads of broccoli yelling at me to use them! :p
This salad is great! The colors blend so well for a holiday dish too! Thank you soo much for sharing! :D

This dish is the best after it has sat overnight! YUM YUM I think the next time that I try it I will use Alissa's Mayo recipe as the "sauce" and see what that is like. I will be making this for my Thanksgiving spread, I am sure!
Thanks again for sharing! :)
