    Broccoli Salad-September

    Broccoli is essentially a large edible flower. The stalks and flower florets are eaten both raw and cooked, and have a flavor reminiscent of cabbage. Broccoli is related to cabbage, kale, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.

    Broccoli is rich in calcium and has anti-oxidant properties which helps prevent some forms of cancer. The same sulphur that can cause gas from over-cooked broccoli also has beneficial antiviral and antibiotic properties.

    Broccoli salad is a wonderful dish to bring to potlucks, parties and cookouts. There are two kinds; mayonnaise based and vinegar based. Both are quite good. Which is your favorite?


    I've heard broccoli salad originates in the South, and Paula Deen makes it, so it must be so. icon_wink.gif


    Here are some broccoli salad recipes:

    There is the mayonnaise based broccoli salad and there's oil and vinegar broccoli salad. There's cooked broccoli salad and there's raw.

    Which one is your favorite?

    We like a raw broccoli salad with a little mayo. This raw broccoli salad is very good and makes a nice dish for a potluck.

    Love Broccoli, sometimes I find that the buds have been slightly overcooked so now I plunge them in cold water as soon as I drain them - works a treat!

    Broccoli Saladis really good. It is made with yogurt instead of mayo.

    That's a good tip about plunging them in the water to stop the cooking.
    Threeovens, that looks yummy! icon_biggrin.gif

    I have always chopped broccoli (very fine) and put it in macaroni and potato salad. When my Son was growing up....he loved the crunchy 'celery' rotfl.gif It keeps it's crunch and really adds something to the texture of salads!
