For the Salad

  • 5 cups broccoli - cut into small florets
  • 1 cup shelled cooked edamame
  • ½ cup green onions - chopped
  • ½ cup salted peanuts
  • 3 tablespoon cilantro - chopped

For the Peanut Sauce


  • Heat a large pot of water and bring it to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and boil for approximately 1-2 minutes (do not over-boil!) Carefully drain boiling water and transfer broccoli to a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Once cooled completely, drain and set aside in a large bowl.
  • To the bowl of broccoli, add the edamame, green onion, peanuts, and cilantro. Mix well and set aside.
  • To make the peanut sauce whisk all ingredients together until fully combined. If dressing is too thick, whisk in more hot water one teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency (I find that thicker is a little better).
  • Toss with broccoli salad until everything is completely coated. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with white and black sesame seeds, if desired.
