Prep Time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

3 minutes



Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 head  SPAR Freshline broccoli, rinsed
  • 1 can    SPAR chickpeas, drained
  • 105 g    SPAR Cranberries (125 ml)
  • 1 round SPAR Feta Cheese with black pepper
  • 10 ml    SPAR honey
  • 1 large  clove garlic, crushed
  • 150 ml   SPAR fat free plain yoghurt
  • +- 25 ml Parmesan cheese shavings

Recipe Method

  1. Trim off all the firm stalks and use just the top green florets. Separate them further into the smallest sections posssible. Pour boiling water over them and set aside for 3 minutes. Tip into a sieve for the water to drain off, then briefly refresh under running cold water.
  2. Combine the blanched broccoli in a bowl with the chickpeas and cranberries.
  3. In a small bowl, mash the feta, honey and garlic together into the yoghurt. Gently turn it into the salad ingredients until they are gently combined.
  4. Top with Parmesan shavings, cover and refrigerate until required.

Hints & Tips

  • As a vegetarian meal, serve an additional side-vegetable to enhance the nutritional balance further.
  • To turn this into a meaty salad, toss in a small amount of crisply fried chopped SPAR lean bacon.
