This has become a nice alternative to the usual side dish, and is a favourite for when we braai. Fresh, crunchy and healthy!
Mushroom and Broccoli Salad
The How To:
1) Steam (about 250g) broccoli for 3-5 minutes, must be cooked but still crunchy. This is the bottom layer of your salad.
2) Cut slices of raw mushrooms and place a layer of it on top of the broccoli.
3) Mix the sauce. I usually use what I have in my fridge and any of these combos work well: half a cup of greek or plain yogurt, 3 tablespoons of cream cheese or mayo, a teaspoon of honey or syrup, 2 chopped chives or spring onions, 1 sliced gherkin (optional), salt, pepper, paprika.
4) Add the sauce as the final layer. Finish off with a dash of paprika for presentation purposes. ;)
