Broccoli Salad at

I was invited to a pot luck dinner. I was assigned to bring a green vegetable. ARGH! If you cook a vegetable before you go, it will be either cold or mush from being kept warm too long. If you cook at the hosts home, you are in their way in their kitchen. I got around it by making a Broccoli Salad. Delicious cold green vegetables to the rescue.

I did not create this recipe. She Who Must Be Obeyed has been making this for years. She got the recipe from a friend and it is posted in several locations on the net. However, it is such an easy good recipe, it must be shared.

I coarse chopped the broccoli. I added the diced red onion, sunflower seeds, raisins, and crumbled feta cheese to it and stirred.

The Verdict

This was a hit at the pot luck. It has sweet/sour notes, a creamy texture from the sauce and crunch from the broccoli. Make it. There is a reason the recipe is so wide spread.
