This is one of those moorish side salads that you just won’t want to stop eating. Crisp, crunchy with a nice zing from the yoghurt sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea salt, to taste

YOGHURT / GOAT'S CHEESE SAUCE

  • 1 cup Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tbs olive oil

  • 2 tbs Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced

  1. Preheat BBQ to high heat. Toss broccolini through olive oil and sea salt, grill for 3-5mins,  turning once or until lightly charred.
