The origin of this salad came from one that was given to me years ago, with the claim that it was the best salad ever.
I looked at it and thought “Raw broccoli? Nuts and sweet dressing? Gag”
But I dutifully made it and was shocked at both how tasty it was and how much the menfolk enjoyed it.
So much so that it is a regular on our Christmas table or for special occasions.
But you know me, I can’t help but wonder how I can tweak a recipe to make it better, healthier or tastier.
Well, firstly I removed the ridiculous amounts of sugar from the dressing and made it a bit tangier to suit my preferences.
I added oven crisped prosciutto for that yummy salty crunch and swapped the cashews in the original recipe for pecans (and then I did one with pumpkin seeds which was the bomb diggity)
Don’t believe me that this is as good as I’m saying? Cool, cool.
Make it yourself and then get back to me.
Better yet; post it and tag me, begging for forgiveness, lol.
