How to make Broccoli Orange Asian Salad Recipe
To begin making the Broccoli Orange Asian Salad recipe, prepare all the vegetables and fruit required.
Zest the orange and save it for the dressing before you segment it.
In a grill pan/pan drizzle some olive oil and grill or saute the broccoli and snow peas until they are slightly charred on a high flaming while continuously stirring it around. It should take around 2 to 3 minutes.
Now assemble the salad by layering a plate with salad leaves, then spread the purple cabbage and carrots.
Place the warm broccoli and snow peas on top and finally place the orange segments.
In a small mixing bowl, add all the ingredients of the dressing and whisk it all together until it thickens and emulsifies with a glossy appearance.
Now drizzle the dressing just before serving and sprinkle crushed peanuts on top.
