Broccolini Salad with Parmesan

Adapted from The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved

Broccolini tastes a lot like broccoli but has extra-long, tender stems, like asparagus. This broccolini salad gets a creamy taste from added parmesan cheese. If you dont have broccolini, feel free to substitute lightly steamed broccoli or raw kale, lightly massaged with your fingertips until it wilts.

2 Servings


1 bunch broccolini
1⁄4 cup onion, red
2 carrot
1 teaspoon sea salt
1⁄4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3⁄4 cup apple
1⁄3 cup currants, dried
1⁄3 cup cheese, parmesan
1⁄3 cup sesame seeds


Lightly steam broccolini or broccoli. Mix with remaining ingredients. If using raw kale, combine with everything except apple, currants, cheese and sesame seeds. With clean hands, start massaging! Grab a fistful of vegetables in each hand and massage the vegetables until the greens appear wilted and saturated with the marinade. Taste and adjust seasoning. Mix in apples and currants, then top with cheese and sesame seeds. Endless variations!
