Marinated broccoli salad recipe is a welcome change from leafy salads. The molasses marinade is delicious and the vinegar softens the texture of the broccoli.

Category:Entrees and sides
1 large head of broccoli, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 small red onion, diced
1 tomato, diced
1 red pepper, diced
½ cup toasted sunflower seeds or slivered almonds
Dressing: 3 Tbsp. Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
½ cup olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Place all dressing ingredients, except oil, in a jar with a lid and give it a good shake, taking care to incorporate the mustard well. Add the oil and give it another good shake until it’s well blended. Season with salt and pepper.
Place vegetables in a big bowl and toss with the dressing (you may not need all of it.) Best if made a few hours ahead. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds before serving.
