      Full of colour, flavour and impact – this is the salad to make when you fancy a kick. Great with a simply grilled or steamed fillet of fish too.

      For the salad

      Wash the broccoli and cut into medium-sized florets. Blitz the florets in a food processor until they resemble the size of giant couscous. This should take about 15 pulses; don’t over-blend or you will loose the texture.

      Pour the broccoli in a big bowl and add the soaked and drained goji berries. Add the dressing (see below) and mix well with your hands. Finally add the rocket and the toasted silvered almonds and serve.

      For the dressing

      Simply add all the ingredients to a blender or a small food processor and mix until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
