Broccoli Salad



This is another of my favourite lunches.  I also enjoy making it for summer barbecues instead of the usual stodgy salads that are on offer.  I generally make it in a similar way to this, but decided to add a couple of things (chia seeds, hemp seeds and flax oil) to make it even healthier this time.  
Here's what I did...
Diced some Spanish onion and doused with balsamic vinegar.  Let this sit for a while so that the vinegar would take the 'edge' off the raw onion.

Added some extra virgin olive oil, flax oil and Dijon mustard (helps emulsify the dressing)

Added Celtic sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and cayenne pepper

Mixed it all together until the dressing was well-combined

Added a large, chopped red bell pepper

Lots of chopped broccoli

Added chia seeds and hemp seeds

Lots of pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds

Mixed it all together and gobbled it up :-)
