I was visiting Murray’s aunt a few months ago & went through her recipes! This Marinaded Bean Salad recipe is most likely from the 70’s she said! Written on a scrap of paper…I do not know where she got the recipe from. I adapted the original recipe so the one here is my take on Dash’s recipe.Continue reading “Dasha’s Marinated Bean Salad”

Brussels Sprouts are not my favourite vegetable by any means. Sometimes if they are roasted & seasoned with maple syrup….haha….I can eat them! But I do like them raw in this salad. I posted this recipe last year.Continue reading “Brussels Sprout & Kale Slaw”
I had some broccoli crowns in the fridge, some carrots and purple cabbage so I decided to make it all into a salad. It turned out really nicely. The key, Murray says, is to cut the broccoli up into small pieces. The dressing is slightly sweet with the addition of maple syrup. I have changed the type of vinegar in the dressing from the original recipe which I got from a friend. Served this with some salmon patties last night, but of course it will pair as a side with anything.
Here is the recipe
Chopped Broccoli Salad
serves 4 as a side dish
2 1/2 cups chopped broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 cup purple cabbage, sliced thinly than diced
1 carrot, finely grated
1/2 cup dried cranberries *** this is also good with currants
1/2 – 1 cup of toasted sunflower seeds *
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 olive oil
1 small shallot, finely chopped
juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper
1 .Combine the shopped broccoli, purple cabbage, grated carrot and dried cranberries together in a medium size bowl
2. In an ungreased skillet, gently toast the sunflower seeds. shake the skillet often to make sure they toast evenly. Cool slightly then add to the broccoli mixture.
3. Mix the dressing ingredients together. I like to mix my salad dressings in a jar and shake to combine.
This dressing recipe makes more than you need for this amount of salad so use any amount to suit your taste.
