Yes, like guacamole, but less caloric and very tasty. Serve with white tortilla chips--those thin ones.

Sunset SEPTEMBER 2011

  • Yield: Serves 8 (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • Minutes: 30 Minutes


  • 1 pound broccoli florets (from about 2 small heads)
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup diced seeded tomato
  • 2 serrano chiles, minced (seed if very hot)
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook florets until crisp-tender, 5 minutes, then scoop into a large bowl of ice water to cool. Drain florets, then squeeze out as much water as possible with your hands.

2. Pulse broccoli in a food processor until finely chopped, then turn into a strainer and drain any liquid. Put in a medium bowl and stir in remaining ingredients. Season with more salt to taste.
