Ingredients 1 x head broccoli
¼ small red onion
½ cup cranberries
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ large carrot, grated
½ Chorizo, (or 5 pieces short cut bacon)
½ cup egg mayonnaise -good quality
1-2 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp white wine vinegar
Cut the brocolli into bite sized pieces and pour boiling water over it.
This step is optional however I prefer broccoli not quite so crunchy. Leave it in the water for up to 5 minutes, drain and allow to cool.

When it is cool, cut it into smaller pieces.
Cut the Chorizo into thin slices and fry over medium heat -you do not need oil if it is a fat-free pan. Drain and set aside.

Grate the carrot -I bought carrot already grated as I love the way their machine does it matchstick thin and long!

Dice the onion into small pieces and combine in a bowl with cooled broccoli, carrot and Chorizo.
