  • 5 shallots, finely sliced
  • handful pitted black olives
  • 4 roast chicken breasts, sliced
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce

If you want to make this salad more substantial, add a pack of egg noodles, cooked according to pack instructions, then cooled under running water.


  1. Steam the broccoli for 4 mins until just tender, tip into a large bowl, then season. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan, then fry the shallots for 2 mins. Add the chillies and garlic, then cook for a further 4 mins until softened.

  2. Remove the shallots, chilli and garlic with a slotted spoon, then mix with the broccoli, olives and chicken. Add the soy sauce to the pan, warm over a medium heat, then pour over the salad. Eat warm or cold.
