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.


Serves: 3-4


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
