The42 recipe book: Quick, easy and nutritious broccoli and apple salad

A perfect post-gym meal.

OVER THE NEXT couple of Mondays, we’re going to be opening The42′s recipe book again to bring you a few ideas for your post-gym or post-match meal.



Broccoli and apple salad

Prep time: 5 minutes
Serves: 6


  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 apple
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon herbal salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  1. First, cut the stalk off a head of broccoli with a sharp knife. Make sure you cut high enough so that large individual florets fall away as you cut. Then, quarter and de-seed the bell pepper and apple.
  2. Add all the ingredients to your blender or food processor and gently pulse until you reach your desired consistency.

Note: This salad is so quickly prepared that it is the perfect salad if you are expecting 12 or even 18 guests. Simply repeat the procedure 2-3 times.
