Chargrilled broccoli & cauliflower salad

Ensalada de flores de brócoli y coliflor

Like many dishes that Shannon invents, she refers to them as flukes, but really we all know they’re beautiful, calculated and methodical. She knows what she’s doing. This salad came about as a weather change necessity; it originated as a deep-fried broccoli and cauliflower fritter dish that included the Salsa Verde as a drizzle and pepitas. Needless to say, it did really well for us, ’cause, yum. But the salad exceeded its deep-fried counterpart. However, if you do want that deep-fried sensation, please feel free to get ambitious and batter up.


Quantity Ingredient
2 broccoli heads, cut into large florets
1/2 cauliflower, cut into large florets
1/2 small purple cabbage, leaves roughly torn into large pieces
olive oil, for drizzling
large handful flat-leaf parsley leaves
large handful coriander leaves
70g pepitas, toasted
small handful Pickled onions (& other stuff)
Salsa verde


  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil, then add the broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Blanch the vegetables for 1–2 minutes until they are just beginning to soften.
  2. Heat a chargrill pan over high heat.
  3. Drain the vegetables and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle over a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the vegetables to the chargrill pan and cook, in batches if necessary, on both sides until chargrill lines appear. Return to the bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, keeping back a small handful of pepitas.
  5. Smear the salsa verde dressing on a serving platter and top with the salad. Scatter over the remaining pepitas and serve.
