  • 1 Lime freshly juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve:

  • 1/4 C Roasted almonds roughly chopped
  • 2 TBS Roasted pepitas


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°C. Meanwhile, boil the buckwheat as per pack instructions (OR 1C buckwheat to 3C water, you will strain off the excess water) Boil for approximately 15 mins. Once the buckwheat groats are cooked and tender, strain and rinse with cold water and set aside.
  • Wash and prep your vegetables. Cut broccoli into small florets, season with salt, pepper and olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes. Keep the oven on and dry roast the almonds and pepitas (if you haven't bought them pre-roasted), keep a close eye on them, they won't need more than 10 minutes.
  • Lightly char your corn in a fry pan over a medium to high heat. Once cooked, carefully use a knife to cut the kernels off the cob.
  • Finely chop the herbs just before assembling your salad.
  • Add all salad ingredients into a large salad bowl, top with salt, pepper, lime juice and olive oil, and mix thoroughly. Serve topped with the roasted almonds and pepitas.
