Raw Broccoli Salad

This is such a delicious salad and when you read the recipe you may think to yourself, who eats raw broccoli! Trust me when a friend brought this to a BBQ it was the first salad bowl to empty on the buffet. The sugar is also unorthodox but is needed to balance the flavours. The onion and celery add a crunch and natural sweetness to the salad and the whole thing is just delicious. Thank you Bridie for introducing me to this lovely salad. If you are having cold meats and salads over the festive season add this to your table,  you and your guests will love it.

An usual Raw Broccoli Salad that can be enjoyed as part of a summer BBQ buffet or over the festive season, served with leftovers. The combination works really well, but the trick is to cut the broccoli florets very small and not to use the hard white stems, save those for a lovely broccoli soup.
