Sumo Salad Cafe

We love contributions to Channel Magazine from our 'locals'. One such local is Jacqui Wright, the friendly host at Sumo Salad in Takapuna. Jacqui (and husband Stuart) have put their hands up to provide a monthly contribution – to inform our readers of how to make tasty and healthy salads, and other bits and pieces. This month Jacqui's contribution is a great recipe for scrumptious Broccoli and Bacon Salad.


2 head of Broccoli
8 rashers of Streaky Bacon
3 firm tomatoes finely sliced
A small bunch of Chives.
200g of Feta


½ clove of garlic peeled
& crushed
2 tsp Dijon Mustard
6 Tbsp Olive oil
2 Tbsp White Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Method: Remove stalks and wash Broccoli heads thoroughly. Cut the heads into Flowerets and the stem into bite size pieces. Blanch really quickly in boiling water for about 60 seconds, drain and set out to dry. Place in a bowl along with crumbed bacon, tomato slices, cheese and chives. Mix the dressing and liberally coat the Broccoli mixture. Great on its own or served with any grilled meat or fish.
Have you seen the price of Broccoli at the moment. I picked up a couple for this salad for 89c each. This makes for a cheap meal for the whole family and as it tastes so great even your teenage boys are going to eat it. There are many versions of Broccoli salad but this is the one I like the best – robbed from my Mother-in-laws recipe book.
