2 Lebanese cucumbers, thinly sliced lengthways into ribbons or chopped
300 g cherry tomatoes, halved
150 g broccoli florets

2 teaspoons lemon juice
To make the broccoli pesto, steam the broccoli in a steamer basket over a saucepan of simmering water for 3 minutes or until tender but still crisp. Set aside to cool. Place the pecans in a food processor and pulse until the nuts are roughly chopped. Add the cooled broccoli and pulse until finely chopped and combined. Add the avocado and lemon juice and blend until just combined. Season with freshly ground
