DIRECTIONS

  • Toast the sunflower seeds. Let cool.
  • Trim bottom 2 inches off the end of the broccoli stalks.
  • In large pot of boiling water, lighlty blanch the broccoli for about 3-4 minutes. Immediately rinse with cold water and drain. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Keep salad refrigerated until time to serve. Serve chilled.
