Broccoli Cocktails

 

Honestly, the words broccoli and cocktail don’t usually connect in my mind but this grown up salad looks yummy 🙂  When I acquire some Pernod, I’m definitely giving it a go!

(serves 4)

 

Ingredients

8oz / 225g broccoli

3 tomatoes

5oz /150g. camembert cheese

few lettuce leaves.

For the dressing:

¼pint / 150mls / ⅔ cup of whipping cream

4 teaspoons of pernod

1 tablespoon chopped pistachio nuts

salt and pepper

 

Method:

  1. Divide the broccoli into florets and cook in boiling salted water for about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain well and allow to cool.
  2. Divide the florets into bite sized pieces and reserve a few for decoration
  3. Pour boiling water over the tomatoes, then drain, peel and chop.
  4. Dice cheese.
  5. Line four cocktail glasses with lettuce leaves and divide the salad between them.
  6. Stir together pernod and cream and season to taste.
  7. Pour over cocktails, decorate with reserved broccoli florets and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

 

Bon appetit!
