Swede, Raw Broccolini and Roast Chicken Salad
"Cooked broccolini or raw ?… It can be both, so you can have either raw in a salad like this broccoli salad where broccoli can be replaced by broccolini but it can also be cooked in various ways like steamed, boiled for literally 1 minte or 2, sauteed, roasted and even grilled. I do use the stalks for pies sometimes as they can take a little bit of cooking whereas florets cannot without melting away ?? not really worth cooking it for more than 2-3 min whichever way, it is too delicate and if you take that crunchiness away is a guaranteed spoiled broccolini."
NotesYuo can feel free to replace the vegetables with your favouritte ones, to me all veggies are super cool and I like them all. I do like to eat seasonal as I use a company that provides locally produced organic produce and these veggies are widely available in October - November months.

- 200 g Swede
- 300 g roast chicken
- 2 small carrots
- 1 larger red onion

- 2 tbsp mayo
- 3 tbsp Greek style yoghurt I used a 2% fat
- 1 tbsp salad cream

Peel wash and grate the swede.
Peel wash and chop the carrot into desired size. You can grate this too or make it into little shaves just like i did using a vegetable peeler.
Take out a large bowl and add the shredded chicken, grated swede, the carrot, the chopped onion, the garlic crushed and chopped finely, the chopped green (or whatever colour you fancy or have) pepper and the finely chopped chilli. Mix all for 30 seconds with the help of two forks or spoons.
In a separate little bowl mix all the sauce ingredients (the yoghurt, lime juice, salad cream and mayo, a little salt and pepper. Mix to hommogenise.
