Broccoli, carrots, cranberries & sunflower seeds

Although this is a salad, it also would be good as a meal.

I have served it with leftovers I had from my Chicken stuffed with Apricots (see my previous recipe), and the two meals went very well together.

If you wanted to be really healthy, cut out the chorizo and make it vegetarian!

You could also use bacon instead of the Chorizo. I always use Short Cut bacon as it has little fat on it.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

1 x head broccoli
small red onion
cup cranberries
cup sunflower seeds
large carrot, grated
Chorizo, (or 5 pieces short cut bacon)
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.

Now add the cranberries, and sunflower seeds.

All dry ingredients now in the bowl

Mix this up until combined.


Now prepare the dressing by mixing the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar together until smooth.


Mix this dressing into the salad until the salad is well coated.

Salad is now ready to serve

Chill if required, or serve at room temperature.
