Broccoli and Mushroom Salad

  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 8 oz pkg mushrooms, quartered
  • ¼ c shredded carrots
  • ¼ small white onion, thin sliced
  • ½ red pepper, thin sliced
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp truffle oil
  • 2 tbs white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs agave syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  • Boil 2 quarts of water in a 3 quart sauce pan. Cut stems from broccoli and cut broccoli into bite size pieces roughly equal to ¼ of an average sized mushroom. Blanch broccoli for 10 seconds in the boiling water then drain and submerge under cold, running water until the broccoli cools. Tricks to getting a nice, bright green color on broccoli include adding some salt to the boiling water and using ice water to quickly cool the broccoli.
  • Combine the liquids and seasonings in a small bowl and whisk to make a dressing. In a larger bowl, combine all the vegetables, then add the dressing and toss well to distribute the dressing. Chill and serve.
