My family always begs for Broccoli Crunch Salad from Whole Foods Market. One day I realized I could make it myself. The results were stellar!
5 cups broccoli florets
6 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon agave syrup
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup currants
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
3 center-cut bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
How to Make It
Steam broccoli, covered, 2 minutes. Plunge broccoli into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and pat dry.
Combine mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients (through pepper) in a large bowl. Add broccoli, currants, onion, and bacon; toss well.
Tip: To avoid watery eyes while dicing an onion, peel it first, and chill it in the refrigerator before dicing.
