Meanwhile, mix all the dressing together adding the oil last, a little at a time so that it emulsifiers. This dressing is so yummy and zingy, I always end up drinking a couple of teaspoon fulls!

Put the sunflower seeds, broccoli and asparagus in a frying pan on a medium to high heat with a little olive oil. Cook until the sunflower seeds start to toast and the veg starts to char. Remove before you burn the seeds! This is a key part of the salad as getting a slightly charded flavour really gives it depth.
