Orange, Ginger & Soy Broccoli Salad

Winter is here! Eek, it kind of snuck up on us…

We seem to forget about our greens during winter and often just go for the starchy veggies. Salads just seem more summery, like water.
Anyways, there are lots of great salad options for winter, like my Orange, Ginger & Soy Broccoli Salad…

You will need:
Baby butter lettuce
Watercress, baby spinach and rocket mixed
Broccoli, steamed
Pine nuts, roasted
Finely chopped pecans {just a sprinkle}
Halloumi cheese, grilled

For the dressing:
1/2 cup of orange juice
Thumb sized piece of fresh ginger, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic
2 tbs soy sauce
Sesame oil {just really a few drops}
1 red chili
3 tbs red wine vinegar
Bash everything except for the vinegar, orange juice & soy sauce together in a mortar and pestle until it’s all in a paste. Then add about half a cup of orange juice, 3 tbs red wine vinegar and 2 tbs soy sauce.
If you need to, you can add a teaspoon of sugar to balance out the flavours.

Assemble the salad by drizzling the dressing over the lettuce, herbs & broccoli. Add the halloumi and sprinkle with the nuts. Finish it off by drizzling some more dressing over the top.

    This is an AMAZING salad!! We had it with steak for dinner, but on its own it would be a fantastic lunch salad as a meal. Thanks for the recipe! It is already a favourite!
