"I can't have starch, so instead of sweet chilli sauce, which tests positive for starch, I used Laksa paste(from a jar).
Really delicious... I never would have thought of dates with broccoli."
Cook, steam or microwave the broccoli until just cooked, but still crisp. Rinse under cold water and drain well.
Place the tatsoi or baby spinach in a salad bowl and add the broccoli.
Remove the pips from the dates and quarter dates. Place in a small saucepan and add the dressing and chilli sauce. Heat gently, remove from heat and pour - still warm - over the salad leaves and broccoli. Add the flaked almonds and onion. Toss lightly and set aside to cool to room temperature before serving.
