Broccoli, Avocado and Sweet Pepper salad

350 g broccoli, trimmed (3/4 lb)
1 small red sweet pepper, seeded and sliced into rings
1 large avocado pear, peeled and stoned (probably 2 Hass avos)
fresh lemon juice

Garlic vinaigrette

100 ml olive or sunflower oil (less than 1/2 cup)
30 ml lemon juice ( 2 tblsp)
5 ml salt (1 tsp)
freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed

Steam broccoli for 4-5 minutes, or until bright green but still crunchy. Refresh under cold running water, drain and place in a bowl with pepper rings. Cut avocado pear into chunks and sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine with borccoli and pepper slices.

To make garlic vinaigrette, combine all ingredients in a screwtop jar and shake until well-blended. Toss with salad ingredients just before serving.

The dressing may be prepared a day in advance and refrigerated until needed.
