RECIPE: Raw, vegan broccoli tabouli salad with avo, lime and olive oil dressing
This salad was pretty much designed to make your skin glow – it’s bursting with all the things that nourish and feed it from the inside. The raspberries are full of lycopene, which is a brilliant skin protector, while the creamy avocado dressing contains healthy fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, making your skin appear more supple and plump.
- 1 head of broccoli, florets finely chopped
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1 cup roughly chopped shelled pistachios, plus extra to serve
- 3 tablespoons goji berries
- handful of coriander leaves
- 1 punnet (150g) raspberries
- grated zest of 1⁄2 lime
- juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 avocado
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
For the dressing, put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth and creamy.
Place the broccoli, avo, carrot, nuts, goji berries and coriander in a large bowl and give everything a good toss. Add most of the raspberries (saving a few to garnish) and gently fold through so they don’t get bruised. Pour over the dressing and toss together, then serve topped with a few extra pistachios and those lucky last few raspberries. Enjoy!
