Asian Broccoli Salad

The photo isn’t pretty, but the food was delicious!

I actually whipped this up fully expecting it to be blah (hence the lame photo).  I hardly paid attention to what I was adding.  So when I tasted it and loved it, I immediately scrambled to jot down what I thought I had added and recruited the husband to make another batch to verify.

The dressing is nice and creamy, thanks to the almond butter.  It reminds me a bit of an Asian coleslaw recipe that always seems to show up on potluck tables, only richer and less sweet.

I’m so glad I have that second batch of dressing ready to go in the fridge to make another salad in the next couple of days!
