With summer being in full swing and barbecues happening every weekend, it is easy to run out of clever ideas to bring something a bit different to the table. I often find myself hitting up my trusty partner in crime Google for something new and exciting to contribute!
Low and behold…. Broccoli Salad!
This particular recipe I found at http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1643,151187-225206,00.html
It truly is a gem and I recommend that you check it out!
1 Broccoli Head
2 Green Onions; sliced
1/2 Cup Rasins
1/2 Cup Walnuts; chopped
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Honey
1 Tbsp Vinegar
Shredded Cheddar Cheese *Optional
Crumbled Bacon *Optional
In a medium bowl, combine Mayonnaise with Honey and Vinegar then whisk well until smooth.
Set the dressing aside then begin assembling the salad.
In a large bowl combine the broccoli with walnuts, and raisins.
Add green onions, bacon crumbles, and cheddar cheese (if using either of the last two).
Pour dressing over the veggies.
This is where I got clever and used a large Tupperware bowl with a lid… give it a good toss around to evenly coat all of the veggies!
Now you got something new and exciting to bring to the table!
