Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

This has been my go to salad for a quick and healthy snack or dinner when I want to eat a lot of vegetables. Broccoli and Cauliflower are great sources of fibre and vitamin B6 and a combination of the 2 in a delicious salad make 2 of 5 of your daily fruit and veg intake. I’ve plated my salad with lettuce, cous cous, avocado, feta cheese, sundried tomato and garlic sauce. Previously, I’ve also added tofu/paneer sautéed in some spices, sautéed mushrooms or spinach to make it a complete meal.
