Simple ingredients, big flavor! This broccoli salad is a perfect addition to a meal, or makes a perfect meal in itself!
I love salads of any kind, and this broccoli salad from Goodie Godmother didn’t disappoint! I am literally eating the last of it while I type this blog post. SO GOOD! That must be why she named it her “Favorite Broccoli Salad!”
I was lucky to be assigned Mary’s blog, Goodie Godmother, for this month’s Secret Recipe Club reveal. Mary’s blog is a culinary feast for the eyes, as well as the pallet, and full recipes for gorgeous desserts that she balances with clean eating savory recipes. Mary dreams of someday opening a little neighborhood bakery, but for now is having the time of her life with her husband, The Godfather, and her two princesses, one of which is her daughter and the other her dog!
I will confess, when I first began browsing Mary’s website, I planned to go a totally different route with my recipe choice. I was down to two recipes, The Best Pumpkin Cheesecake and Overnight Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, when I decided to take one more glance through the salads and saw this bowl of deliciousness! Those pumpkin delicacies will be made, pinkie swear, but for this share, it was the broccoli salad. I shared some with the family, but I will confess, I ate most of this myself!
I didn’t change much from the original recipe, other than replacing the pine nuts with sunflower seeds, and reducing the onion a bit. This salad will be made often! It’s a new favorite of mine, too. Thanks, Mary for the great recipe!
- 5 cups chopped broccoli, florets and stems
- 1/3 cup Craisins
- 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup mayo (I used fat free)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the dressing, whisk together: mayo, milk vinegar, sugar and salt.
In a bowl, toss together broccoil, Craisins, onion and sunflower seeds. Pour dressing over the top, and toss together again.
Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. I thought it was even better the next day!
