Today I made a quick and simple broccoli salad to beat tthe clock that told me it was getting late to work and the heat as well. Broccoli being rich in fiber as well as trace nutrients is ideal for dieters wanting to lose weight. I find it good also because it is green and somehow green seems the right feast for the eye anytime of the year.
Recipe: Broccoli salad with some cashews
Broccoli – Washed and cut into small florets and stalks trimmed – 4 cups
Roasted and quartered cashewnuts – 10
Salt to taste
Black peppercorns – 10
Olive oil – 1 tsp.
I use the stalks of broccoli as well. Trim the sides and retain the softer inner portion.
Steam the florets and stalks with a dash of salt in the microwave for 2 minutes, mixing once in between. Cool.
Crush the peppercorns coarsely.
Add the rest of the ingredients and the crushed pepper and toss well.
