Broccoli & Asparagus with Sesame Dressing

This is such a simple summer salad using a bunch of fresh greens and a super flavoursome sesame dressing. I always think my Christmas lunch is made up of a bunch of delicious sides and this easy salad is a perfect refreshing dish to go with all of the heavy meals.

Broccoli & Asparagus with Sesame Dressing

Is it just me or is there something about summer that makes you want to eat tonnes of fresh fruits and vegetables? I always end up eating such a variety of plants over summer (mainly because of all the different summer fruits.) I made this sesame dressing for the first time the other day and it’s defiantly going to be a staple dressing in our house. You can always double the recipe and leave it in the fridge for up two weeks.

I’ve been making a bunch of Christmas recipes over on my instagram as well as here on my blog. Be sure to check out the most delicious Honey Mustard Roast Potatoes as well as this super easy Peanut Butter Caramel Torte.

Broccoli & Asparagus with Sesame Dressing

20 stalks asparagus

1 broccoli 

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 tbsp sesame oil 

3 cups rocket

For the dressing

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp Tamari

1 clove garlic

1cm piece of ginger 

Juice from 1 lemon

dash of water


In a large pan over medium heat add your asparagus, broccoli and garlic. Toss through the sesame oil and cook for around 5-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside. 

To make the sesame dressing add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. In a large salad bowl add your rocket as well as the broccoli and asparagus. Top with the sesame dressing and toss through. 

Have fun and enjoy
