I have finally found the recipe I need duplicate the feeling I get at a restaurant where I want to finish a good salad to the last bite.  It is amazing how chopping up broccoli and combining it with these other ingredients makes it feel as though you are not being forced to eat broccoli like a child.  Plus, you can chop up a big bowl of these ingredients and eat for days!  I think it is the color and the crunch that make this salad work, especially the grated red cabbage. And raw vegetables never lose their nutritional value due to cooking! Try this salad with the citrus dressing featured below. Ingredients: For the citrus vinaigrette: ¼ cup apple cider vinegar 2 teaspoons honey 1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped fine 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped fine Juice and zest from two limes.  Try bottled juice for the convenience, and see if you like it. 1 teaspoon ground fenugreek - a good substitute is curry powder which usually contains fenugreek 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, just a bit as an emulsifier Just whisk the above ingredients together and toss with the ingredients below when you are ready. The dressing may improve in flavor after a few hours or overnight. Just whisk or shake and then toss. For the salad: 2 cups chopped broccoli florets 2 cups chopped cauliflower florets ½ - ¾ cup red cabbage, shredded or grated ½ cup carrots, peeled and either diced, julienned or just make thin ribbons with the peeler ¼ cup green onions or shallots, finely chopped ½ cup cilantro leaves, chopped There are no rules here.  Just throw in any of these other ingredients in the proportion you like best. Mushrooms, chopped Red pepper, seeded and chopped Cherry tomatoes, whole or cut in half Sugar snap peas Frozen peas Cucumber, chopped Sunflower seeds, whole, roasted and unsalted Any roasted nuts, roasted and chopped Any dried fruit, chopped, like apricots Any whole dried fruit like raisins or cranberries Any canned or fresh fruit, peeled and chopped.  Try mango or pineapple.
