Recently I came across this lovely broccoli salad recipe which is fresh, tasty and healthy. Moreover it is a great winter side dish.
1 broccoli: julienned
1 apple: cut into small slices
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup cashews: chopped in halves or quarters
parmesan cheese or graviera cheese: very finally sliced with a knife.
For the dressing:
1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt (or 1/4 cup of mayonnaise and 1/4 cup of Greek yoghurt)
2 table spoons of apple cider
3/4 tablespoon of honey
You can use fresh broccoli or you can toss it together with a sesame oil for 2 minutes in wok that you closed with a lid.
On a bed of broccoli arrange apples and toss raisins. Pour over your dressing and mix it well.
Sprinkle with cashews and cheese.
Benefits of broccoli:
Brocoli is high in vitamin C, K and many other vitamins and minerals. It prevents osteoarthritis, reduces cancer risk, reverses heart damage caused by diabetes and by protecting from UV light it prevents skin cancer.
