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.

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.
