Broccoli Salad with Berries
Broccoli salads are great for boxed lunches, picnics and of course, church suppers. I have quite a few different versions on my catering menu. Broccoli Salad with Berries is a client favorite. Make it extra special by stirring in some crispy fried bacon just before serving.
For the dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
For the salad:
5 cups broccoli florets, trimmed
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup fresh blackberries
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
1/3 cup salted cashews
Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Place broccoli, red onion, strawberries, blueberries and mandarin oranges in a large bowl. Toss gently with dressing. Garnish with cashews. Serves 6 to 8.
