Celery and broccoli salad with apple vinaigrette

Serves 4

1 head broccoli, cut into florets
2 zucchini, trimmed and cut into fine julienne (matchstick) strips
2 celery stalks, trimmed and cut on the diagonal
1 small bunch radishes, trimmed and quartered

Apple vinaigrette
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp white miso paste or 1 tbsp wheat-free tamari
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
3 tbsp freshly pressed apple juice


Bring a medium-sized saucepan of water to the boil. Add the broccoli and blanch for 2-3 minutes. Strain and run under the cold water tap until completely cold.

Place the broccoli in a salad bowl with the zucchini, celery and radishes. Place the vinaigrette ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake well to blend. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and serve.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
