Chinese-Style Broccoli Salad

“This is a refreshing and light tasting broccoli salad. Try sprinkling a few sesame or pumpkin seeds on top for a little extra crunch!”

Ingredients:

  • 2 heads fresh broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

Preparation:

Separate broccoli into bite-sized florets. Peel tough skin off stem and quarter it into 2 inch pieces cut slantwise.

Bring 2 1/2 quarts water, 2 tablespoons oil and 1 tablespoon salt to boil. Add broccoli and boil quickly for 1 minute; plunge into cold water to set color; drain and place on platter or in a bowl.

In a small bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and sugar. Pour mixture over broccoli, toss. This salad can be served hot or cold, your choice!
