Apple Broccoli Salad

This simple dish combines the potent, slightly earthy taste of fresh broccoli with the crisp sweetness of ripe apple. Combine the broccoli found in your share with a few spare apples and you have a quick and easy lunch idea. A great choice to rely on after apple picking!


  • 1 large broccoli head
  • 2 apples
  • Spring onion or small onion, very finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock, vegetable broth, or water
  • 1-2 bunches kale coarsely, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Slice the stems of the broccoli into 1/8" discs, or as thin as you can manage. When you reach the broccoli's crown, cut off each floret and slice thinly as well. Set pieces in a bowl.
  2. Halve and core the apples, then place the apples flat side down on the cutting board. Slice the apples into 1/8" pieces and add to the bowl with broccoli.
  3. Pour dressing over the bowl of ingredients and mix together.

Tip: If you place a plate in the fridge for ten minutes before serving the salad, the salad will stay crisp slightly longer when served.
