Broccoli Salad

broccoli pine nut salad


This salad has been with me for a long time. I first learnt a version of it when I use to travel to Cairns on my school holidays, it then became the salad I’d have to take to barbecues when I was studying at uni, now it’s a fabulous salad for late winter when broccoli are in season.

The bite from the onion is so warming and the crunchy toasted pine nuts perfection with the combination of all the other ingredients. We paired it with a rare steak for dinner, and I’ve since just eaten bowls full of it for lunch.

  1. Thanks Clare – I will certainly be trying this recipe. When I am out and about in the city (Sydney) there is a lovely broccoli salad I usually buy for lunch in a foodhall, the only one I have seen. And now I will have my very own recipe to make – so nutritious and easy to make…. perfect for me!
