Broccoli and cauliflower are two healthy and delicious vegetables. Broccoli contains two primary carotenoids: lutein and zeaxanthin, which decrease your risk of eye disorders as you age. In addition to this, broccoli also has beta-carotene. The body converts this chemical into vitamin A, which may enhance eyesight in persons with vitamin A deficiency. In contrast, cauliflower is naturally rich in fiber and B vitamins and contains antioxidants and phytonutrients that may defend against cancer.

Broccoli and cauliflower are usually steamed together. Although steaming vegetables is pretty straightforward, there's an easier way to prepare broccoli and cauliflower. Broccoli Cauliflower Salad is a simple, healthy, and light side dish that can pair with nearly any vegan dish. It does not get any better than this delicious, healthy broccoli cauliflower salad, featuring roasted pumpkin seeds and a zesty lemon dressing. 

How Long Can You Keep Broccoli And Cauliflower In The Fridge?

Broccoli and cauliflower will eventually spoil. However, if stored in an unwashed plastic bag left open to allow air circulation, the broccoli and cauliflower last for 3-5 days. However, if you deal with chopped broccoli and cauliflower, it will only last two days, so eat it before then. 

How Many Carbs Are In Broccoli And Cauliflower Salad?

There are 14.5 carbs and 9.1 net carbs in every serving of broccoli and cauliflower salad.   

How Do You Make Broccoli Taste Better?

There are lots of ways to make broccoli taste better. A simple sprinkling of salt and pepper can do the trick, or you can add soy sauce to give it an umami flavor. You can also use lemon juice like this broccoli and cauliflower salad does to provide the broccoli with a dose of zesty acidic flavor.
