Recipes: Raw Broccoli Salad

God damn I love broccoli. So strange, as I hated it as a child. Being told I was eating miniature trees just never cut it with me. Now I happily munch on the stuff. So when I saw this recipe on Stone Soup - and with a salad to be made for a dear friend for lunch together this weekend - my heart sang with praise be to the vegetable fairies. And the fact that the salad only takes 5 minutes to make. All the more time to skype Phuong with!

Haha - I love this recipe too - totally bought broccoli on the weekend! But funnily on Masterchef this week they did the WA mining challenge and Dani was told off for putting out a barely cooked broccoli salad and I thought 'poor old masterchef judges clearly don't get StoneSoup's newsletters and know that raw broccoli is so hot right now'....
