Broccoli Salad

The idea for this broccoli salad came from here, but of course I had to make a few changes. Here’s what we did, and it turned out quite nicely. We may even have it again!
Broccoli Salad
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup light Miracle Whip
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 broccoli crown, chopped into small bite-sized pieces
1/3 cup craisins
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons diced red onion
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons cooked, crumbled bacon
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, sugar, vinegar and ginger. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. In a large bowl, toss the remaining ingredients together. Pour the dressing over the broccoli mixture and toss to coat all the ingredients with the sauce. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. Right before serving, give the salad another good toss to recombine any dressing that may have settled at the bottom. Serves 4-6.

Broccoli Salad

Chinese-Style Broccoli Salad

2 heads broccoli, separated into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1-2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli; cook 1-2 minutes. Plunge into cold water and drain. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over broccoli and toss. Serve warm or cold.
Note: As you can tell from the picture, I decided to add some sliced mushrooms.
