Broccoli and Apple Salad

This is a quick and easy salad, and is a healthy and tasty accompaniment to any meal.

You could really add your own ingredients, however these all went very well together.

I grow spinach in my yard, so I often use it raw in salads, and for this recipe I bought broccolini as I find this nicer than broccoli, especially when raw and in a salad.

I used a Pink Lady apple and any sweet, crisp and fresh apple would work.  Currently apples are fresh and extremely good and juicy, which works well in this recipe.

You could also vary the dressing to your own taste.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: No cooking
Serves: 2

¾ bunch broccolini
1 small Pink Lady apple, sliced thinly
2 radishes, sliced thinly
About 40 g baby spinach
2 tbsp olive oil
About ¼ cup cider vinegar
1 tsp mustard - I used wholegrain
1 tbsp chives, chopped
Small handful of pecans, chopped - or other nuts

Cut the stalks from the broccoli into smaller pieces, and cut the broccoli into florets.

Put these in a serving bowl and add the apple, radish and baby spinach to it.

Put the vinegar, olive oil, mustard and the chives in a jar or anything with a lid that is leak-proof.  Add some salt and pepper to taste, put the lid on, and shake the dressing until it is thoroughly mixed.

Pour this dressing over the salad in the bowl, and mix to coat the salad.

Sprinkle the pecans, or whatever nuts you are using, on top of this, and serve.

Serve as an accompaniment, or for one meal, serve on it's own with some thick, buttered bread!
