  • 1 large head of broccoli, chopped into bite sized florets and stems thinly sliced
  • 2 hearts of romaine lettuce
  • sprouts or other green of choice (I used pea shoots)
  • 1 batch vegan caesar salad dressing
  • 1/2 fresh lemon
  • vegan parmesan, homemade or storebought, to garnish


  1. First prepare a large bowl, and fill it with cold water and a handful of ice cubes. Place clean and prepared broccoli florets into the bowl and submerge. Let sit while you prepare the dressing.
  2. Prepare romaine hearts by slicing into bite sized pieces and toss into a large mixing bowl. Drain and pat dry broccoli, and add to the romaine bowl.
  3. Add dressing, and using your hands, massage the dressing into the salad. Toss in sprouts or other delicate green of choice and gently toss again to coat.
  4. To serve, grate or sprinkle a generous amount of vegan parmesan on top, extra fresh cracked black pepper and a side of fresh lemon wedge.
