Sara’s Shaved Broccoli with Feta Cheese, cranberries and pistachio

Serves 4 .

ingredients

2 bunches broccoli with leaves, washed
2 Tablespoons golden olive oil
Zest from 1 fresh lemon + juice from half 1 cup golden raisins

1⁄2 cup French feta (or regular crumbled feta) Crunchy salt (Kosher)
Black pepper

To Make

Trim all the leaves off the stems of the broccoli. Cut off the florets. Reserve both in a bowl. Cut the stalks in half. Remove the tough outer skin using a sharp vegetable peeler. Discard. Run the peeler along the cut side of the stalks and thinly shave. Gently pat with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.

Place the shavings, florets and leaves in a large mixing bowl. Add the olive oil, lemon zest, juice, raisins and feta. Toss gently. Season with the crunchy salt and pepper. Transfer to a platter or large serving bowl.

Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator (you can make this a few hours ahead).
