blanched almonds cup, toasted and roughly chopped


olive oil 1 tbsp

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Cook the broccoli for 2 minutes until tender, drain well and tip into a bowl with the olive oil and lemon juice. Cool completely.


To make the dressing, fry the garlic with the olive oil in a pan for 2 minutes. Put the rest of the dressing ingredients into a blender along with the fried garlic and oil, and season generously. Whizz until completely smooth, adding 1-2 tbsp of water if its a little thick.
