Shaved Broccoli Stalk Salad with Lime and Cotija Cheese

My YJ Recipes


shaved broccoli stalk salad
Make twice the food by saving your broccoli stalks to make this fresh and delicious salad.


Makes 2 servings.

Leaves and stalks from 1 bunch broccoli (about 3 stalks), cut into flat-sided batons
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground 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.

Tip: Use fresh broccoli. To cut stalks, remove the leaves, trim the ends, and then remove the thick outer layer with four long knife cuts.
