I did it my way....

....of course, you have to sing the title of this post in a swanky, Sinatra manner.

Broccoli Salad (my way)

  • one bunch of broccoli, chopped (be sure to use your stems, too!  Just peel them and chop them up along with everything else)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or twice as much, 'cause they're awesome)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • a tiny bit of onion, sliced as thin as possible then chopped as teeny-tiny as possible...  picture the onions that were on the McD's cheeseburgers you ate as a child (::gag::, I know, but I'm not suggesting that you eat the crap, just remember what one of the toppings looked like)
Mix all of that stuff together and toss it with this dressing:

  • 1/3 c mayo (homemade is best, but anything without high fructose corn syrup will do)
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar (regular white will work fine)
  • a pinch of sugar or a drizzle of honey
  • here's the kicker: 1/3 c blueberry Greek yogurt 
I loved it.  The kids loved it (except for O, but he doesn't like much lately- he's three).  My fiance loved it, which means it was a hit.  

This one is a keeper.

(please excuse the bad picture...  the good camera is apparently angry at me, so I had my fiance take one with his phone.  Also, I was too lazy to work on presentation and make it all food-porny and stuff.  This is as good as it gets tonight)

...and just for fun...  

Thanks for reading!
