Broccoli and cauliflower salad with orange soy dressing
Blanching the broccoli and cauliflower creates a beautiful bright salad that is easy to digest.
Orange Soy Dressing
- Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add a couple of teaspoons of salt. Keep the heat high and add the broccoli and cauliflower florets. After several minutes, test a piece. Drain when cooked but still firm and crunchy to bite.
- Immediately transfer the vegetables to a large bowl. Put the bowl in the sink and cover the vegetables with cold water. Leave until they feel cool.
- Put a small frying pan over a low heat and toast the sesame seeds until fragrant and lightly coloured. Peel the orange, remove the pith and use the whole segments combined with the salad ingredients in a bowl and dress with plenty of orange soy dressing.
- To make the dressing, put all the ingredients in a small jar and shake well.
