Keeping on the theme of tomato+broccoli+avocado=delicious starve cancer combination I decided to throw them together in a salad et voila a quick tasty dish I’ll be sure to make again and again.  I did let the salad sit for an hour in the fridge while we went out on a walk through the forest. The lemon juice kept it from going brown and the flavours had a chance to mingle.  Was a great companion to a cup of miso soup.

Broccoli Avo Crunch Salad

1 head of broccoli chopped into florets
1/2 cucumber chopped (peel if not organic)
1 tomato chopped
1 stalk of celery sliced thinly
1/2 cup of flat leaf parsley roughly chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 avocado mashed
1 tsp sea salt
1 TBS lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic minced

Place all ingredients (except sunflower seeds) for the salad in a bowl and mix with hands to combine.

For the dressing mash all ingredients together until it creates a paste.  Add to the salad and mix together gently until dressing had been distributed throughout.  Sprinkle with sunflower seeds.

Serve with miso soup.

I did add a bit of spirolized beets on top for colour that I had marinated for a few days in a garlic scape pesto – recipe to come.
