Grilled Broccoli and Potato Salad with Smoky Chipotle Cashew Cream Sauce
During the summertime, I’m always on the hunt for new side dishes to serve at barbecues. As much as I love a good corn on the cob or macaroni salad, I like to switch it up and pack in as much flavor as possible.
The smoky chipotle cashew cream sauce here is the key to a next-level side dish. Especially if you’re serving this alongside some grilled meats or seafood, the smokiness of the vegan cream sauce is the perfect complement. Made with pureed cashews, chipotles and adobo sauce, and a little bit of garlic, this easy blender made sauce will have you elevating all of your foods with a good drizzle.
The broccoli and potatoes are grilled and chopped, so the potatoes become slightly smashed in the process, so the consistency of this salad is amazing and every bite has a bit of broccoli and a bit of potato, with a little char. Topped with crunchy cashews, this salad has just enough crunch.
Trust me on this one and make this dish and bring it with you to your next gathering or make it at home for your family or yourself. And in the wintertime (or if you don’t have a grill) you can just use an oven to roast the veggies!
