Pepper and Broccoli Salad

Pepper and Broccoli Salad

Cook Time: 20 minutes + Chilling Time

Broccoli, celery, carrots and bell peppers tossed together and drizzled with a french dressing in this refreshing salad.

Ingredients

1 sweet red bell pepper

1 medium carrot

2 large broccoli florets, with stalk

4 celery sticks

 

French dressing (without oil) makes 3 Tbsp:

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 Tbsp salt
  • 1/4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 Tbsp mild mustard
  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Method

  1. De-seed the pepper and cut into 1 cm squares. Peel and grate the carrot.
  2. Slice across the broccoli stems so you get chopped tops and thinly-sliced stalks. Peel the outer layers and chop the celery finely.
  3. Mix all together, add your favourite French Dressing and mix again.
  4. Leave in the fridge for about ½ an hour before serving on a bed of finely-shredded lettuce.

 

  1. For french dressing:
