Broccoli Pomegranate Salad
Last Christmas, I made it for Ryan's family out in California at his grandparents' place. The thing about making it out there is, you can walk out into their yard and pick half the ingredients off the trees yourself. Like the pomegranate and oranges. And I did. And not just for this recipe.
Deprived little Midwesterner that I am, I kinda of went crazy picking and eating fruit everyday. They probably thought they had some kind of monkey infestation when they saw their trees. I had Ryan document my bliss. I kinda look like a monkey.
And fresh fruit?... off the trees?
And there was bliss? and glee? and euphoria?
*sigh* I miss California.
I'm digressing. Even if you can't pick the ingredients of the tree, this salad is still super delicious.
After much rambling, the recipe.
3 cps of broccoli chopped in small pieces
seeds from one pomegranate (see below for help with seeding it)
2 Tbsp red onion, chopped2 large oranges chopped
1/2 c sunflower seeds
1/2 c mayo or miracle whip
1/2 c orange juice
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Dash of pepper
Combine and toss all the above.
And voila! California and bliss and glee and euphoria in a bowl!
