Broccoli Lime Salad

Hello, New Year! Here’s a crunchy salad that takes advantage of delicious winter produce.

Broccoli Lime Salad for lunch

My Persian lime tree is loaded with ripe fruit, begging to be used in tangy, bright culinary creations. This recipe starts with fresh broccoli, adding celery for savory crunch and pepitas for richness. The simple dressing uses fresh squeezed lime juice and minced salt preserved limes for punch. Add a few tortilla chips and you’ve got lunch. This salad will be delicious for several days after making, storing easily in the fridge. Enjoy!
