Tahini & Lime Broccoli Salad

Tahini & Lime Broccoli Salad

We recently discovered this recipe by Lidey Heuck and adapted it very slightly.  The crunchy raw broccoli (stems and all), plus the peanuts give this salad lots of texture and make it a wonderful summer BBQ side dish. But, our favorite part of this salad is the way the tahini combines with the tangy lime to create a bright, Thai inspired, flavor. This recipe is 10000% scrumptious and now in our permanent entertaining repertoire! Watch us make it here!  


2 lbs broccoli (stems included) 
¾ c thinly sliced scallions, white and green parts (3 to 5 scallions)
½ c lightly salted peanuts,
roughly chopped
½ c of Seed + Mill Organic Roasted Garlic Tahini (if using regular tahini, add 1 grated garlic clove)
½ c fresh lime juice (from about 2 limes) 
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds 
2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
2 tsp hot honey (Prefer to keep it vegan? Try agave or maple! And if you don’t have hot honey, just add some chili flakes to finish.)
⅓  c roughly chopped fresh cilantro or mint (a combination of both is even better)


  1. Trim the broccoli stalks and peel them to remove the tough outer layer. Cut off the florets, leaving as much of the stalk as possible intact, and set the florets aside. Using the shredding or julienne blade of a food processor, a mandolin or a sharp knife, julienne the stems and place them in a large bowl.
  2. Roughly chop the florets and add them to the bowl, along with the scallions and peanuts.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the tahini, lime juice, soy sauce, hot honey, garlic (if using) and whisk until smooth. If the dressing is too thick, add 1-2 tbsp of water. If the dressing feels too thin, add 1-2 tbsp more tahini.
  4. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss thoroughly to coat. Set aside at room temperature for at least 15 minutes, tossing occasionally, to allow the broccoli to soften slightly.
  5. Just before serving, sprinkle over the toasted sesame seeds, add the fresh herbs and toss well. (You can refrigerate for up to 8 hours before serving.)

    This recipe comes from Jessie Sheehan's new book Snackable Bakes, which we cannot wait to bake our way through!

    "These are a take on my MIL’s Oh Henry!® bars, a fantastically chewy and flavorful bar cookie, that gives off plenty of the caramel/peanut/chocolate vibes of the actual candy. That is due to a slightly nutty oat base that is briefly cooked on the stovetop, baked, and then topped with a chocolate glaze. They were on regular rotation when my husband was growing up and I’m still jealous about that. Here, I’ve given them a little tahini makeover (usually they call for peanut butter) and I’m pretty darn excited about it."

    We had a lot of fun making these skewers with the vegan kelp “meat” made by our friends at Akua! Anything that involves a grill, warm weather, good company and delicious whole ingredient food is going to keep us happy!  

    We paired these skewers with a vibrant, herby tahini sauce that is perfect as a skewer dipping, drizzle sauce, salad dressing or crudite dip!
