Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 small head of broccoli
  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Trim the broccoli and cauliflower into small florets and blanch them in boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the blanched broccoli and cauliflower with the chopped hazelnuts, sliced apple, dried cranberries, and chopped parsley.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.
  4. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until well combined.
  5. Serve the brassica salad immediately, or refrigerate for 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld before serving.

Notes

  • To toast hazelnuts, spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes, or until fragrant and lightly golden brown.
  • Adjust the sweetness and acidity of the dressing by adding more or less honey and apple cider vinegar, according to your taste preferences.
  • This salad can be served as a side dish or a light main course, accompanied by grilled chicken or tofu for added protein.
