Broccoli Salad

Yet another easy and satisfying salad. I bet even your picky eaters wouldn’t mind having a cup or two of this salad. And it’s very simple to prepare. Perfect for busy moms who would like to feed their families healthy and yet, inexpensive dinners. You can add cooked or grilled chicken to make a wholseome meal and serve it with garlic rolls.  
Here’s how I made it.
Broccoli Salad
4 cups broccoli florets, chopped stems etc.
1 tbsp sugar
½ cup Hellmann’s Mayonnaise
¾ cup sour cream
1 tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
A handful of Sultana raisins, dried cranberries, chopped walnuts, almonds-all optional
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Bacon pieces, optional
How to:
Mix sugar, mayo, sour cream, vinegar, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Add broccoli florets and toss in the vinaigrette mixture until thoroughly coated.
Top with your favourite nuts, dried fruits, bacon pieces and cheddar cheese.
Cover and keep it in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
This salad tastes better if kept overnight in the fridge.
