Do You Eat Broccoli???

by Karen Rose Smith



I eat broccoli because it's good for me--the calcium and fiber and all that.  But I don't really like it unless it's floating in cheese sauce or in some other recipe that disguises the taste.  Except for the recipe below which a friend gave me.  This broccoli slaw doesn't taste like broccoli.  It just has a lot of crunch.  This recipe is terrific for covered dishes at picnics or holiday get-togethers.  Someone always asks me for the recipe.  I hope you enjoy it.  In the comments, can you share your favorite vegetable?





Oriental Broccoli Salad

Salad:
1 bag broccoli slaw
1 pkg Beef Ramen Noodles (broken up)
1 cup sunflower seeds

Dressing:
3/4 cup oil
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup white vinegar
Ramen Noodle seasoning

Mix the slaw, broken up noodles and sunflower seeds in a large bowl.  Then mix up the dressing in a measuring cup and pour over the slaw mixture.  I mix this up the evening before because I like the noodles soft.  Stir again before serving.
