2 heads of broccoli, florets removed and cut into bite sized pieces
1⁄2 a packet of Telegraph Hill Manuka Smoked Semi-dried Tomatoes,
cut into small pieces
1 spanish onion, cut into thin wedges
150g Vandy's Streaky Bacon, chopped
1⁄2 packet Blue River Dairy Vintage Sheep Feta, chopped finely

Dressing Ingredients:
1⁄2 cup Al Brown Lemon and Oregano Infused Olive Oil
2 Tbsps fresh lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp Sweetree Hakarimata Raw Honey
1 tsp The Spice Trader Oreganum
1⁄2 tsp rganic Dijon mustard
Freshly ground Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Black Pepper
1 fresh red chilli

Steam broccoli for 10 minutes.
Gently fry Spanish onion and bacon over a medium heat until slightly crispy, and keep aside. Gently fry garlic over a medium heat, and keep aside.

In a small bowl whisk together all of the dressing ingredients until emulsified.

Drizzle the dressing over the broccoli, toss well. Add the semi-dried tomatoes, Spanish onion and feta and combine well.

For best flavour, let the salad rest for 30 minutes before serving.

Al Brown's Lemon & Oregano infused olive oil

Al Brown's Lemon & Oregano infused olive oil is made from Koroneki olives grown in the Roys Hill Estate in the Hawkes Bay. The olives have been cold pressed to produce an irresistible oil hell-bent on taking your food to the next level.

This Lemon & Oregano combo is reminiscent of a lazy evening meal in the Mediterranean, adding a citrus kick and a savoury herbal note to many dishes. It goes hand in hand with flavours both rich and delicate, just as easily pairing with a fresh Greek Salad as it is with Moroccan Roast Lamb or Chargrilled Veges.

It's unique but not precious and designed to flow, not drizzle so don't be shy with it, there's plenty more where it came from.
