Nappa Broccoli Cauliflower Salad


  • 1 small head Napa cabbage
  • 2 large broccoli spears
  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 10 oz. mandarin oranges drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 TBS sugar
  • 2 TBS vinegar
  • 1 TBS parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper sauce


  • Cut up first 3 ingredients in small pieces. Add drained oranges. Cook almonds and sugar on medium to high heat, stirring constantly, till sugar melts and sticks to almonds. Cool on paper towels, and add to salad mixture.
  • Mix all dressing ingredients and whisk well. Pour over salad, toss, and serve!


The dressing can be made a couple days in advance and kept in the refrigerator. The almonds can be sugared ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container or ziploc bag.
I usually add extra oranges just because I like it that way. I have been known to add extra sugared almonds too!
