Shaved Broccoli Stalk Salad with Lime

"One of the few vegetables my kids will eat is broccoli," Duggan says, "so I found new ways to use it." Sodium reflects 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt.

Cooking Light JANUARY 2014

  • Yield: Serves 2 (serving size: 1 cup)


  • 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.
