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