broccoli-saladWell friends, with Christmas right around the corner, holiday meals are usually a bit over the top when it comes to vast array of menu items; and don’t get me wrong am all for that. However, sometimes it’s hard to actually eat all of that in one seating…at least not without the repercussions of a major stomach upset. So perhaps it might be handy to have a lighter menu option somewhere between roasted chicken and the other 6 varieties of meat….and that’s where this salad comes in. seriously lets observe a moment of silence to appreciate how gorgeous and vibrant and perfect this salad is, the color, the contacting textures, the sweet and tangy flavors, this recipe has it all!


You’re going to need a side dish for all those BBQ s you’re planning to have and it’s about time good old ‘kachumbari ‘  got a side kick, don’t you think?


  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • ½ cup raisings
  • 2 apples, diced
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ cup cooked and chopped bacon.


Bring water to a boil; add a pinch of salt and bicarbonate. Add the broccoli and blanch until bright green and slightly softened about 2 minutes. Drain well, run under cold water or place it in ice water to stop the cooking, and drain again.



In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, onion and sugar. Add the broccoli, bacon, apples and raisings and toss to coat.


Chill till ready to serve.
