Hello Dear Reader,
I'll bet you don't hear those two words together very often-"Broccoli" and "Salad"but stay with me. If you love broccoli, as I do, when you read this little recipe you'll know it's going to taste great. Lovely hubby says he could eat this just by itself! It's that good. So, along with the broccoli there is bacon and we all know that any veggie from the brassica family are best friends with bacon, they just go together so well. Add the sweetness of sultanas, the soft saltiness of a grated mature cheese and a simple tangy-sweet mayo dressing and you have just made heaven on a plate.
I have made this recipe twice so far and when I went to make it the second time, I was out of sunflower seeds, so I replaced it with toasted macadamias, oh my, it took this already divine little salad to another level. So substitute away, I say. I have tweaked this recipe a little (I have steamed the broccoli and reduced the sugar in the dressing) but the original recipe comes from Mels Kitchen Cafe.
