Creamy Broccoli Salad

Makes: 4 to 6 as a side

What You Need
  • 2 large heads broccoli (enough for 6 cups)
  • Half red onion
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pepper (optional)
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup (or more) sunflower seeds
What To Do
  1. Wash the broccoli. Chop it into small florets, enough for 6 cups. Dice half of a red onion.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together ½ cup Greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon honey.
  3. In a large bowl, mix broccoli, diced onion, yogurt mixture, and raisins. Season with ¼ to ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Taste, and stir in additional yogurt and honey if the mixture is not creamy enough, or salt for a little more flavor.
  4. Directly before serving, sprinkle with ¼ cup or more sunflower seeds. (Note: Add seeds last to avoid becoming soggy. It’s best eaten fresh, so if making ahead, prepare all components separately and mix them together before serving.)
