Add a festive touch to this year’s Christmas dinner with a Broccoli and Dried Cranberry Salad. The deep green of the broccoli dotted with splotches of red from the dried cranberries will make your dinner table come alive with Christmas spirit. Allow time for the salad to thoroughly chill.
2 lbs. fresh broccoli crowns, trimmed and separated into bite-sized pieces
1 5-oz package of dried cranberries (add more if you love dried cranberries)
½ cup onion, chopped fine (optional)
1 cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sugar
2 Tablespoons vinegar (apple cider, red wine or balsamic)
In a large salad bowl combine the broccoli, dried cranberries, and onion. In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar. Add mayonnaise mixture to broccoli. Toss well. Chill at least one hour. Makes about 8 servings.
