Recipe: The Everything Broccoli Salad

Clean out the fridge

It's that time of year with random leftovers, extra ingredients from holiday shopping lists, etc.

Last night I looked at the contents in the fridge and thought 'I wonder if I can use most of that to make a broccoli salad'. Here's what we used to make what turned out to be a very delicious and filling broccoli salad.

Salad Ingredients:

  • broccolini heads from sister-in-laws garden
  • extra bacon purchased for Christmas Breakfast 
  • hard boiled egg (again extras purchased for Christmas)
  • pan roasted pine nuts in bacon grease (left overs from homemade pesto)
  • last of the rocket leaves left over from salad earlier in the week
  • quarter of red onion left over from some guacamole 
  • some sad looking mushrooms at the bottom of the veggie drawer

Dressing Ingredients (nothing measured just guessing and tasting as I go):

  • tahini (bottle found at back of fridge with expiry of 2018 - oopsie!)
  • crushed garlic
  • fresh lemon juice
  • apple cider vinegar
  • mustard
  • salt
  • honey
  • mayo

Another favourite of mine to make with random fridge items / big fridge clean-outs are homemade pizzas. I'd love to know how you become creative in the kitchen to avoid food waste.
