Deli Style Broccoli Cheddar Salad is filled with fresh broccoli and other mix-in’s then tossed in a creamy dressing.
Prep Time:30 min.
Total Time:30 min.
Yield:serves 6 to 81x
1 cup dried cranberries (craisins)
4 cups chopped broccoli florets, bite size pieces
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 large purple onion, chopped
1/3 cup roasted sunflower seeds
For the Dressing:
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (you can also use white wine vinegar or rice vinegar)
1/4 cup sugar
Combine the 1 cup of dried cranberries with 2 cups of hot water (I just use the hot water from my sink). Let the cranberries sit for 10 minutes so they begin to plump back up. Drain and add to a large bowl.
Add the broccoli, cheese, onion and sunflower seeds to the large bowl and toss to combine.
For the dressing:
Whisk together the mayo, apple cider vinegar and sugar until smooth and sugar is dissolved. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and toss to coat. Keep in fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy!
Soaking the dried cranberries is an optional step, but is highly recommended.
