Broccoli Salad

March 3, 2012

Healthy Broccoli Salad

oooh, I am sooo loving this salad at the moment….

I have to admit that I do get fixated on a dish and eat it over & over until it dies a natural death, but this salad is sooooo good for you. I often have it for lunch with a cold boiled egg or half a can of tuna. It keeps well for 2 days but is best eaten on the day.

Full of vitamin C rich broccoli, this salad is made in 5 seconds, be careful not to over process or you will have puree! Broccoli is reputed to have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties and is also an excellent source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells. (Wikipedia)

This recipe is based on the one in the Thermomix Everyday cookbook with a few additions. I like to add a small handful of currants & pepitas for crunch, it really is adaptable to how you like it.

200g broccoli
1 handful parsley
1 spring onion, sliced
1 small zucchini
1 small small carrot
1 apple (I often use 1/2)
100g plain yoghurt
1 tab mayo or salad dressing
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tab currants
1 tab pepitas + more for garnish
Put all ingredients into the TM bowl and mix on SP 4 for 5 – 10 seconds until desired consistency. Use the spatula to stir if neccesary.

    Hi, is there any alternative to the yoghurt?

      You could use mayo or sunflower dressing instead.
