Carrot & Broccoli Salad (4 ingredients)

The summer is a busy time juggling work, child care, holidays and making the most of the long sunny days. It’s great to have a few super quick salad recipes that take minutes to make but are top on taste!

This is my mothers signature salad. She gets requests for it when we have family get togethers. Its perfect for lunch with soda bread or for supper with some boiled eggs.

Next time you have some Irish organic carrots and broccoli in your veg box give this a go.

  • 1 small head of broccoli
  • 3 carrots
  • 3-4 tablespoons mayo (regular or vegan)
  • ⅓ cup salted or roasted peanuts
  • Pinch black pepper


Step 1: Chop the broccoli florets into bite sized pieces, add them to a mixing bowl. You can chop or grate the stalk too, or keep it to chop for a stir fry.

Step 2: Grate the carrots, add them to the broccoli.

Step 3: Season with a pinch of salt and pepper then mix in the peanuts and mayo. Taste it and then transfer into a serving bowl.

Enjoy with a selection of salads and bread.
