Not Your Average Broccoli and Raisin Salad

Time: 15 mins


  • 1 lb broccoli
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup roasted sunflower seeds or 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted


  • 1 Toast the sunflower seeds. Let cool.
  • 2 Trim bottom 2 inches off the end of the broccoli stalks.
  • 3 In large pot of boiling water, lighlty blanch the broccoli for about 3-4 minutes. Immediately rinse with cold water and drain. Set aside.
  • 4 In small non-reactive bowl combine all the dressing ingredients except for the vinegar and blend well with hand-held immersion blender. Taste and adjust dressing. If too sweet start by adding 1/4 teaspoon but up to 1 teaspoon of the raspberry vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 5 Once cool enough to handle, dice the broccoli stems and chop up the florets into bite-size pieces. Place the cut up broccoli into a large salad bowl with the carrots, onion, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
  • 6 Keep salad refrigerated until time to serve. Serve chilled.
