Summer Fresh Broccoli Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 5 to 6 cups fresh Broccoli Florets (approx. 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup slivered Almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup cooked Bacon, crumbled
  • 1/4 c. Red Onion – chopped
  • 1/2 c. dried cranberries
  • 1 c. Peas – frozen, thawed (or fresh peas if available)

Dressing:

  • 1 c. Mayonnaise – light
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar
  • ¼ c. Honey
  • dash Sea Salt

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water, salted with a teaspoon of salt, to a boil. Add the broccoli florets. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, depending on how crunchy you prefer the broccoli. Don’t cook for more than 2 minutes or the broccoli will get mushy. Drain the broccoli and immediately plunge into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Let cool and drain.
  2. Combine broccoli florets, almonds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together light mayonnaise, cider vinegar, honey and salt. Add the dressing to the salad and toss, mixing well. Chill thoroughly before serving.
