Author Notes

Humble ingredients work together to make a satisfyingly crunchy and flavorful salad. This is a versatile recipe - feel free to change out the sunflower seeds to pecans, the honey to maple syrup, and you could even add some chopped apple. —Allison

What You'll Need
  • For the salad:
  • 4 stalks of celery, cleaned, trimmed, and shaved almost paper thin
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • A handful of sunflower seeds (a bit less than 1/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, peeled with a vegetable peeler
  • For the dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Add sunflower seeds to a pan over medium heat. Toast seeds until they begin to lightly brown and become fragrant.
  2. Combine celery, broccoli, Parmesan, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl.
  3. Over the salad add the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine and adjust dressing to your taste. Enjoy!
