Safari Dried Fruits and Nuts are nature's gifts to us and every time we add a handful of dried fruits or nuts to our baking and cooking, we add nature’s colour, flavour and healthy goodness. As they say: more fruit … more nuts … more taste!

Broccoli & Date Salad


  • 500 g small broccoli florets
  • 100 g Safari Pitted Dates, broken into large pieces
  • 125 ml bought vinaigrette salad dressing
  • 125 ml sweet chilli sauce
  • 100 g Safari Flaked or Whole Blanched Almonds, toasted
  • 45 ml finely chopped onion
  • 250 ml baby spinach leaves or tatsoi
  • salt and freshly-milled black pepper


Cook the broccoli until just done but still quite crisp, known as el dente. Immediately rinse under cold water and drain well. Pat dry thoroughly, place in a glass bowl and set aside.

Place the dates in a small saucepan and add the dressing and chilli sauce. Heat gently, remove from heat and pour over the broccoli. Add the almonds and onion. Toss lightly and set aside to cool completely before adding the spinach or tatsoi. Season to taste and toss well.

Serve as a starter or side dish.
