Crunchy Broccoli Salad

Crunchy Broccoli Salad

This salad is the perfect dish to take to your next potluck dinner or family gathering. It's easy, full of flavor, and people devour it. Click to Tweet

Here’s a yummy recipe from my Aunt Ruth. Crunchy Broccoli Salad is the perfect dish to take to your next potluck dinner or family gathering. It’s easy, full of flavor, and people devour it. Broccoli Slaw, Carrots, Radishes, Golden Raisins, Sunflower Seeds, and the main attraction–Ramen Noodles. 

You can opt to purchase the broccoli slaw in a salad mix at the store, or make your own, by grating the stalks from fresh broccoli. 

Ingredients Needed to Make Crunchy Broccoli Salad

  • broccoli slaw salad mix
  • carrot
  • radishes
  • golden raisins
  • sunflower seeds
  • chicken flavored Ramen noodles
  • apple cider vinegar
  • vegetable oil
  • sugar

Instructions for this Salad

First off, you’ll want to prepare the ingredients. Peel the carrots, and then grate both the carrots and radishes. Chop the raisins, if desired. (Some people have an aversion to whole plump raisins, so if that’s the case in your family, chopping them seems to help.)

Crush the Ramen noodles into small pieces. This might be the most fun aspect of this recipe.

In a large bowl, mix together broccoli slaw, the grated carrots and radishes, raisins, sunflower seeds, and crushed Ramen noodles. Be sure to reserve 3 tablespoons of the noodles for garnishing at the last.

In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, prepare the dressing for the salad. Whisk together the vinegar, oil, and sugar until combined.

Pour dressing over the slaw mixture. Toss to combine. You may garnish with remaining noodles, if desired. This recipe will serve 6-8 people.

I hope you will enjoy this salad as much as we do! Go ahead and add it to your summer recipes!

Equipment

Cuisinart Cookware

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 large red, green, yellow and orange bell peppers 1 each - sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • Fajita seasoning
  • 16 oz Frozen grilled chicken strips
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 pieces Low carb tortillas
  • Shredded cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Low-fat sour cream

Instructions

  • Slice onion in quarter-inch slices, then deseed bell peppers and slice in half inch pieces.
  • Pour olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and dump the onion and peppers in it, stirring occasionally to keep the vegetables from burning. Once they are tender, add the fajita seasoning and garlic and cook for a minute longer. Then add the chicken pieces and water.
  • While the onions and peppers are cooking, I make a tray with the shredded lettuce, and cheese and set aside.
  • To serve I heat a tortilla and slide it on a plate and then spread the meat and vegetables in one side of the tortilla. Top with lettuce, cheese, and sour cream and fold the tortilla over and you’re ready to eat! Serves 4

Notes

*If you prefer fresh chicken over frozen, you can stir-fry cut-up chicken tenders until done.
