So today I was having a craving for raw broccoli, but it was such a strong craving, I desperately needed it. This broccoli, apple and walnut salad really hit the spot.
- 2 heads broccoli
- 1 apple (I used pink lady)
- 1/3 cup walnuts
- 1/8 red onion
For the dressing
- 2 tbs almond butter (100% almonds)
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- squeeze lemon juice
- 1 tbs hot water
Cut the broccoli into small florets. Boil a pot of water and blanch the broccoli for only 15 seconds (any more and it will go soft and disgusting). Strain the broccoli and run cold water through it to ensure it doesn’t continue to cook.
Finely slice the red onion and the apple. Combine these with the broccoli and top with the walnuts.
Place the dressing ingredients in a jar, and shake to combine. Drizzle over the top of the salad and serve. This will serve two people.
I love these flavours - the dressing really makes this salad.
