Broccoli Strawberry Salad

This is one of those recipe's that is going to be passed from person to person. It's that good and so easy.

Carol, from the Taste Of Home Cook's Corner board posted this and as soon as I saw it I knew it would on my plate asap.

Check out Carol's pictures and her comments on this delicious recipe. She found the recipe HERE.

Salad:

1 1/2 cups chopped fresh strawberries-( I added more once the recipe was put together)

1 1/2 cups chopped fresh broccoli

1/4 cup salted cashews halves ( I don't care for nuts so I subbed chickpeas. Next time I'll roast them first before adding them)

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

2 ounces Monterey Jack Cheese- ( subbed a Mexican Blend)

Dressing:


2 tablespoons low fat Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


Mix the broccoli,onion, drained and rinsed chickpeas in a large bowl


Carefully add the strawberries to the broccoli mixture.



Combine the yogurt, honey and vinegar and mix well and add to the broccoli salad, making sure everything is well combined.


Top with cheese.

  2. Linda, you're a genius! I don't know what I was thinking you'd substitute for the cashews-but you sure surprised me using chick peas...and I mean surprised in a GOOD way. What a fantastic idea! I just may be borrowing that one sometime down the road. I don't always have cashews in the house.

    I notice you do what I do-chop florets and some stems too...........those stems are wonderful and add lots of crunch to the party.

    So glad you enjoyed this one-we sure did! Love the photos too----now where's my fork? :)

  3. Janie- you can't go wrong with this recipe. I have a tiny bit left and will be off to pick up more broccoli soon.

    Carol- nothing goes to waste in this house! The stems do add additional crunch plus loaded with iron and calcium!
