If your family is like mine, the ‘Broccoli Salad’ brought to family events is a dish laden with mayonnaise and sugar, not to mention bacon. Delicious, sure, but not at all heart-healthy.
Recently, a friend brought Cookie + Kate’s Favorite Broccoli Salad to a dinner party and I was WOWED. Not only was it delicious, I loved it even though the recipe includes raw red onion, which I ordinarily despise.
My friend Lisa, who made this dish, explained her take on the recipe: she always makes the dressing the day before (or at least many hours before) and adds the onions to the dressing.
