Raw broccoli doesn’t have to be as dry as you might think – a quick marinade will soften the florets, making them much more palatable!
Take the florets off 1 head of broccoli and place in a bowl – try to break them up into the smaller florets as much as possible
Mix the following in a small jar or glass to make the marinade:
~ juice of half a lemon
~ 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
~ 1 tbsp dijon mustard
~ 2-3 tbsp macadamia oil (or olive oil)
~ salt and pepper
Pour the marinade over the broccoli, stiring thoroughly and leave to rest for around half an hour. (N.B. you may not need to use all of the marinade, or you may like more lemon juice)
Add into the bowl of broccoli:
~ a handful of slivered/flaked or chopped almonds (lightly toasted in a dry pan if you like)
~ around 6 rashers of bacon, diced and fried until slightly crispy
~ 1 avocado, diced
The salad doesnt last very well, having avocado in it, but you can prepare the salad with the broccoli, almonds and bacon in advance and then add in the avocado as you require.
