Notes

a) Dressing amounts - You most likely won't need all of the dressing. Broccoli tends to suck up liquid so it's difficult to predict how much dressing you'll need, especially if you don't serve it straight away. Eyeball to your desired consistency in the first instance, then adjust as needed when the broccoli absorbs some of it up.
 
b) Filling amounts - Feel free to use more/less of each ingredient, it really is all down to preference. However here I offer the measurements I personally feel offer the best balance of flavour.
 
c) Calories - based on using all of the dressing, so may be a slight over estimate.
