About this recipe: I've never been a big fan of broccoli, until I discovered it in recipes where it's just blanched and kept very crisp. In this salad, crunchy broccoli is mixed with grapes and apple. It's fresh, delicious and perfect for a picnic because this salad is very portable.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g broccoli florets
  • 1 handful pine nuts
  • 1 handful raisins or sultanas
  • 1 handful fresh grapes
  • 2 apples (different varieties for colour, if possible) - washed, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr15min 

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add broccoli and blanch for 2 minutes; drain and let cool. (You can add the broccoli to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process completely.)
  2. In a large bowl combine pine nuts, raisins, grapes and diced apples.
  3. Add cooled broccoli and mayonnaise. Season with pepper and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and serve chilled.
