Broccoli Salad, Chopped Style

The broccoli is chopped in a food processor to a desired consistency. Sometime I make it fine, sometime coarse, or maybe a combo of both fine and coarse. I shred the other veggies in the food processor.

First chop the fresh spices such as basil and oregano in a food processor, then pulse chop the broccoli to the desired consistency. Empty the fresh spices and broccoli into a large bowl and squeeze one lemon or lime over the broccoli and mix. (This salad can be made by chopping and grating the vegetables by hand instead of using a food processor, it just takes longer.)

Shred the celery, carrots, radish, cucumber, bell peppers and other hard vegetables. Add these veggies to the broccoli and squeeze another ½ to 1 lemon or lime over the vegetables. Add Bragg Amino’s and/or sea salt, and extra virgin olive oil and mix. Cover and refrigerate the salad for at least 30 minutes, or as long as 7 or 8 hours. When ready to eat, add an avocado and chopped tomato. Adjust seasoning if necessary. When I took this salad to work, I added the avocado and tomato when I prepared the salad.
