Leaves and stalks from 1 bunch broccoli (about 3 stalks), cut into batons
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/4 cup crumbled cotija or feta cheese


1. Place the broccoli batons flat on a cutting board, then use a sharp vegetable peeler to shave the broccoli into paper-thin strips.

2. Place the shaved broccoli and leaves in a medium bowl and toss with the olive oil, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Gently fold in the cheese and serve immediately.
