This Easy Broccoli Raisin Salad with pistachios and herbs is my go-to when wanting to add a little extra vegetables to my lunch. I love to enjoy this as a side with a sandwich instead of chips.
Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garam masala or curry powder and garlic and sauté for 1 minute or just until the garlic starts to brown. Remove from heat and whisk in the lemon juice, vinegar, honey, garlic chili sauce (or red pepper flakes), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss in the golden raisins and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, toss together the broccoli, pistachios, and cilantro until combined. Pour the dressing and golden raisin mixture into the broccoli mixture and toss to combine. Taste and season with more salt, pepper, or red pepper flakes, as needed.
Enjoy right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
*The broccoli can be raw, steamed, or roasted — whichever way you prefer it but just make sure it maintains a crunch!
