Avoca’s Irish Broccoli Salad


Make friends with broccoli, it’s one of the best superfoods out there!  Broccoli is nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory, cancer-fighting, and detoxifying. It also slows aging, improves cognitive function, increases metabolism, supports good digestion, and the list goes on!  Broccoli sprouts are even more powerful and are easy to grow.  And don’t forget to utilize the broccoli stem: peel, chop, and toss into your salad.  The key to eating more vegetables is making them taste great!

The original recipe comes from the Avoca Restaurant in Kilmacanogue, Co Wicklow, Ireland, one of my most favorite places to eat. They make the best vegetable salads in the world!

                              Ingredients For the Salad:

  • 20 oz of broccoli florets cut bite-sized
  • 8 oz cherry tomatoes halved (or pomegranate seeds)
  • 6 oz feta cheese, cut into bite-size cubes. Look for 100% sheep's milk 
  • 4 oz toasted hazelnuts 

                                       Ingredients For the Dressing:

  • 1 cup extra virgin organic olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 2-3 tablespoon raw honey or real maple syrup
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  Avoca’s Irish Broccoli Salad


Place all of the salad dressing ingredients in a glass shaker and shake vigorously until well blended. Keeps up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator. Remember to take the dressing out 30 minutes before your meal, as the olive oil solidifies in the cold. You can make this dressing your own by adding additional spices and herbs, or by mixing the olive oil with hazelnut, walnut or avocado oil. 

Place the broccoli florets, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and hazelnuts in a bowl. Gently toss with enough of the dressing to coat the vegetables well. Season with pepper. Salt may not be required, as the feta is usually salty enough. Enjoy!
