Abe Laboriel Jr's Roasted Broccoli Salad

 A while back ago, Paul McCartney's drummer was kind enough to give me his recipe of this salad after he posted about it on Twitter. I did tried it and it was delicious, but I forgot about it until the other day. So I dig deep and thankfully found it! 

Lip Smacking Sweets

Meringue with a hint of cardamom and strawberry-apricot (inspired by my cousin Rachel's jam) compote with freshly squeezed orange juice and basil.

Compote:
1 pint of strawberries, quatered
5 and a half apricots, sliced
1 orange, juiced
3-4 small leaves of basil, chopped
A pinch of salt
1/2 cup of sugar

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside until the strawberries release their water syrupy (about an hour or two). Heat about a slice of butter in a medium saucepan on medium high heat and pour the bowl and bring to a boil. After about 15 minutes, use your potato masher and mash the fruit together. Let cook for another 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Take the saucepan off the stove until cool for use. You can also store it in mason jars.

Also great for smoothies with yogurt or vanilla ice cream
