Broccoli Bloody Hell

Like ever person walking the earth I have a love hate relationship with broccoli, I love to hate it. But that’s hardly good for any person to hate an excellent dark green veggie. 
According to “Incredible Edibles” (Okamoto – 1994) Broccoli is chalked full of Vit A & C, and calcium. It lowers risk of cancer at both ends of the intestinal track, but note, ensure your broccoli entrance point is still top side… 
and can help prevent cancers in the respiratory track too. Miracle food! This is a must share.
Mom and dad give the thumbs up while on Skype. 7/2011

1 Head of Broccoli cut bite sized
1 Red Pepper – cut in tiny cute squares
2 TBSP pickled red onions (I haven't discussed my new fav fridge pickle yet - next post :)
2 TBSP pickled onion juice
1 lemon zest
1 TBSP of Mayo or Greek Yogurt
crack of pepper

Prepare the dressing in a lovely salad bowl, Mayo/yogurt, lemon zest, pickled onion juice, stir to combine.
Add the broccoli, peppers, & pickled onions, stir to combine and finish with cracked pepper.

Enjoy and feel smug about eating your raw brassica. And go skype with your parents while making it – your mom will be so proud.
