Broccoli Salad (GF)
I love the addition of sunflower seeds. I didn't actually use sunflower seeds in the salad in the pic as I didn't have any. I didn't have red onion either, so I used regular and added some chopped orange sweet pepper for color. It was great! Kent Altena has a nice broccoli salad in Low-Carbing Among Friends which uses bacon. It received rave reviews on lowcarbfriends.com
3 cups broccoli florets, chopped (750 mL)
1/2 cup salted sunflower seeds (125 mL)
1/4 cup chopped red onion (50 mL)
1/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese, (50 mL)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (125 mL)
1/4 cup sour cream (50 mL)
1 tbsp SPLENDA® Granular (15 mL)
1 tbsp lemon juice (15 mL)
Lightly steam broccoli florets about 3 minutes. Transfer broccoli to medium bowl and refrigerate, while preparing dressing.
Mayonnaise Dressing: In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, SPLENDA® Granular and lemon juice.
Assembly: In large casserole dish, combine broccoli, sunflower seeds, red onion and Cheddar cheese, if using. Stir in Dressing. Serve.
Helpful Hints: To further reduce the carbs, omit sunflower seeds and red onion, if desired.
This salad makes a wonderful addition to a summer picnic.
