Balsamic Broccolini Salad

Updated: Aug 22, 2022

Serves: 4

I eat broccoli because I know it is good for me, I eat broccolini because they taste better than broccoli. I either fry them up with oil and garlic as a warm dish or make them into a salad with this balsamic dressing.

1 heaping tsp wholegrain Dijon mustard

3 cloves garlic finely minced

2 tbsp finely chopped parsley

  3. Taste for right salt seasoning and add if required

  4. Can be stored in refrigerator for two weeks – shake well when using

  5. Add salt to pot of boiling water

  7. Add to boiling water and cook until tenderness you want

  8. Strain in colander and let cool
