Sara’s Shaved Broccoli with Feta Cheese, cranberries and pistachio
Serves 4 .
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
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).
