*Note: If you don't have a food processor, this salad can also be chopped by hand - it'll just take ya a little longer.
1 head of broccoli (no stems)
1 head of cauliflower (no stems)
3 or 4 carrots
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup no-shell sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup currants (if you don't have these you can just add extra raisins - or dried cranberries)
juice from half a lemon (about 4 tbsp)
salt & pepper
1. Wash & roughly chop broccoli into manageable pieces (remove stems). Pulse in food processor until finely chopped. Empty into a large bowl.
2. Do the same with the cauliflower. Also add into bowl.
3. Now the carrots (We're doing everything separately because each vegetable takes a different amount of time to reach "finely chopped" consistency. There's also not enough room for them to all go in my food processor at once - but feel free to try it if you have a gigantic one!)
4. Mix all together in your large bowl & stir in the sunflower seeds, currants and raisins. Now squeeze your lemon juice over everything and add salt & pepper to taste. Finally, drizzle with a little maple syrup (I use about a tablespoon for the whole thing), give it a final stir and enjoy!
5. Enjoy again tomorrow.
I enjoy a mimosa - which pairs excellently with everything.
