1/2 red onions, minced 80 g
4 1/2 cups broccoli, cut into florets 550 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
4 tbsp yogurt, plain, 2% 60 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 60 mL
1/4 cup flaked almonds 18 g
8 tbsp grapes 50 g
40 g blue cheese, crumbled
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  1. Thinly slice the onion, then soak it in a small bowl, filled with water and a few drops of vinegar. Set aside while preparing the rest of the salad or leave it overnight in the refrigerator. This makes the raw onion easier to digest and crispier.
  2. Prepare the broccoli: wash and cut off the florets. Peel off any though skin of the stalks and cut them into small pieces. Blanch them in salted boiling water until crisp-tender (al dente), about 4 min. Drain well, then set aside.
  3. Add the yogurt, lemon juice and oil to a bowl then mix well. Add the brocoli, onion, almonds and grapes then toss well. Season with pepper to taste, add the crumbled cheese and serve.
