Broccoli Salad

Thursday, August 13, 2009

I was having broccoli salad as lunch few days back in a cafe and it was super duper tasty. Therefore, I decided to give it a try on making this salad back home after googling about the recipe for the salad. It was pretty simple. The original recipe didn't blanch the broccoli and it was served raw. The taste of raw vegetables definitely puts me off. Therefore, I decided to blanch the vegetables for a few minutes to 'tenderized' them. It was indeed a keeper salad recipe. Hubby loved them too. He ate most of the salad that I made for tonight after his regular badminton session with his friends. THUMBS UP from him on the salad.. :)


4 cups broccoli florets
1 orange, cubed
1 cup almond flakes
1 onion, diced
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup corns
1 carrot, cut into long strips

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/8 cup sugar
1 tbsp vinegar

  1. Blanch broccoli, carrots and corns for a few minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Pour in raisins, onions and almonds into the blanched vegetables.
  3. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Pour the mixed dressing into the bowl. Toss again.
  5. Lastly put in oranges so that they don't break apart too much.
  6. Place in the fridge for approximately 1 hour.
  7. Serve chilled.
