What to Serve with a Broccoli Salad?

Sometimes salads are good enough and filling enough to keep you going on their own. But we understand that sometimes they’re better served alongside even more tasty food.

For meat eaters, a broccoli salad goes perfectly with a good cut of beef. Try this Sticky Asian Beef Short Ribs recipe, where a Tenderstem® broccoli salad will provide a vibrant, crunchy contrast to the sweet stickiness of the beef. Or you can even add a Tenderstem® salad alongside a sirloin steak, creating that mouth-watering combo of succulent beef and crunchy Tenderstem®.

For vegetarians, try a Tenderstem® salad with grilled halloumi. Once again the textures combine perfectly, as does the tangy saltiness of halloumi with crunchy nuttiness of the Tenderstem® broccoli.
