You’ll love this holiday chicken and broccoli salad – and the dressing also makes a great marinade for salmon.


  • 16 oz (450 g) broccoli florets, chopped into bite-size chunks
  • ½ cup (60 g) raw chopped pecans
  • ½ cup (80 g) finely chopped red onion
  • 1 cup (150 g) shredded chicken breast
  • 1 cup (190 g) cooked cauliflower rice
  • ⅓ cup (55 g) dried cranberries or dried tart cherries, chopped


  • Place all the salad ingredients into a serving bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients. Mix until everything is blended and starts to emulsify. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss until the ingredients and well coated.
  • Place the salad in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.
