CFC Broccoli Caesar Salad

A DELICIOUS + NUTRITIOUS, SPIN on the traditional Caesar.

This dressing is so tangy and fresh tasting, I could pour it on top of just about everything! (Hint: make extra dressing!)

How do you prefer your boiled eggs?

If you love soft boiled like me, then here’s your guide to perfect those babies!

How Long To Boil PERFECT Eggs?!

Gently submerge your eggs into briskly boiling water.

For soft-boiled eggs: 4 minutes

For slightly soft-boiled eggs: 5 minutes

For custardy yet firm soft-boiled eggs: 6 minutes

For creamy hard-boiled eggs: 7 minutes

For firm yet still creamy hard-boiled eggs: 8 minutes

For very firm hard-boiled eggs: 9 minutes

For best results, immediately remove eggs from the boiling water at the time chosen above, using a long handle slotted spoon, and gently place them into an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

Makes 6 servings


  • 1 large head of fresh broccoli
  • 1 head of crisp Napa cabbage
  • 3 Tbsps grated Parmesan, plus more shaved for serving


  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • finely grated lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste about 1/4 teaspoon each
  • hard-boiled eggs, to serve


Rinse your broccoli and cabbage thoroughly under running water, then set in towels to drain the excess moisture.

Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Once boiling, add in the entire broccoli head, holding it with the stem facing up, as shown in the pictures.

Allow the broccoli to boil for just 2-3 minutes (we want it bright green, and tender-crisp), then immediately drain water and set broccoli on towels to dry and let it cool.Meanwhile, cut out and discard the core, then very thinly slice your cabbage into strips and set aside in a large bowl. I use a mandoline for this step, but a sharp knife works too! Sprinkle sliced cabbage with a tiny bit of sea salt, which helps it to soften a bit. Once the broccoli has cooled enough to handle, use a sharp chef’s knife and carefully separate the florets making downward cuts from the stem. Slice the large florets into nice, bite-sized pieces as shown. Add your chopped broccoli into your bowl with the cabbage.In a small mixing bowl, add all dressing ingredients and whisk until well combined. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the cabbage and broccoli then drizzle with your homemade Caesar dressing. Gently toss until everything is evenly coated with the dressing.Taste test, then season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, if desired. Let your salad sit at room temperature, or the fridge for 10 minutes or so, before serving, so the flavors combine.

Garnish salad with additional shaved Parmesan and serve with your perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs if desired.

Enjoy! ❤Rachel
