Method
  1. To prepare the lime chilli dressing, blend all of the ingredients together using a mini food processor or stick blender until completely homogenised.
  2. Any leftover dressing can be kept in the fridge for 3—4 days. It works brilliantly with any salad or green vegetable, and is also delicious drizzled over ripe avocado, or served with grilled fish.
  3. To make the broccoli salad, wash the broccoli, dry thorough, and chop into small morsels. Crush the roasted pistachios very lightly using a pestle and mortar. Finely chop the red chilli and tear the coriander and mint leaves with your hands. Finely chop or dice the dates into small chunks.
  4. Dress the salad with the 35g of lime and chilli dressing, drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with the roasted pumpkin seeds. Squeeze over a little lime juice and serve with a wedge to garnish.
