It's no surprise that we like a good salad here at home. Crisp allowed me to order a number of items and they also have beautiful recipes that you can put in your basket. They put together the recipes and you just click on order and everything is in your online basket. Of course, as a food blogger, I had to give my own twist to this broccoli salad with smoked chicken.

Broccoli salad with smoked chicken
A delicious salad with a little spice!

I made it just a little spicier by adding a green jalapeño. Jalapeño is a type of chili pepper originally from Mexico. It is one of the most popular types of chili peppers and is often used in Tex-Mex and Mexican cuisine. Jalapeños are usually green, but ripen to a reddish color. They have a mild to moderate spiciness and a slightly fruity taste. They are widely used in salsas, guacamole, sauces, marinades and other dishes to add a flavorful spicy note. Jalapeños are also available in canned, smoked or dried form and can be used to add a spicy kick to a variety of dishes.

Funny thing always happens when I roast nuts or almonds: my daughter immediately walks into the kitchen to ask if I'm making popcorn. That is of course not the case, but apparently it smells just like that when I roast something in the frying pan.

Also with this salad, if you eat vegetarian, you only have to leave out the smoked chicken. Then just still a delicious salad. In my kitchen there is always a basil plant in the kitchen. I think it's best to add those leaves fresh. This is also a great zero waste recipe because if you have leftovers in your fridge, you can also add them to this salad.
