Servings
Makes 2 servings.

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

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.
