  • Author: Louise


A yummy broccoli salad – get your greens in while making your tummy very happy! Ideal for a braai!


300g broccoli
2 small peppers, (different colours preferably ie. one red, one yellow)
1/3 cup cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
½ tsp turmeric
¼ tsp paprika
½ tsp oil
¼ cup flaked almonds



  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, cream, paprika and turmeric together until evenly combined.
  2. Place the broccoli in a microwaveable bowl, cover with cling wrap and then place in the microwave and cook on med-high for 1 minute. If you don’t have a microwave, bring some water to the boil in a pot, and once boiling, place broccoli in the water and cook for one minute. We are not trying to cook the broccoli right through, we are really just softening it slightly and bringing out its colour.
  3. In a small pan, heat up the oil, add the almonds and allow them to brown slightly. Be careful not to let them burn.
  4. Slice the peppers
  5. Place broccoli in a bowl, place the peppers on the top and when you are ready to serve the salad, spoon the cream/mayonnaise mixture on top of the broccoli and sprinkle the almonds on top.
