Broccoli Salad   4 comments

We went to our friend’s house last night for a casual BBQ dinner and I was in charge of the salad.  I wanted to bring a hearty salad; one that could be considered a side dish.  So, I looked on the internet and then came up with my own in a hurry – lazy broccoli salad:

I bought the broccoli/cauliflower florets in a ready to use bag along with pre-diced red onions and a bunch of red seedless grapes.  I broke down the florets into bite sized pieces mixed it with a quarter cup of the diced red onions and cut about a cup of the red grapes in half.

The dressing consisted of a cup of mayo, 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar and 1 tablespoon sugar mixed together.  Combine the dressing with the broccoli/cauliflower, red onion and grapes and put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.  When you are ready to serve the salad mix in the cheddar cheese and sunflower seeds to your liking and dig in! Delicious!

While you are waiting for the salad ingredients to get to know one another, you can make pecan thumbprint cookies…

I will share this recipe when I get back to Washington! Wait for it…
