Broccoli and red pepper salad

This sounds terribly strange coming from the biggest advocate for more is more, but sometimes less really is more.

Take this simple broccoli and red pepper salad, only three ingredients and you have the perfect side dish for a juicy T-bone steak, braaied to perfection. You’re not in need of a showstopper, you want something that compliments the meat and adds some colour to your plate.  The broccoli and red pepper combination is often found as pizza toppings and ingredients to quiches; it works so well as a fresh salad though.
