Thursday Two Questions #75 Brocoli Salad Recipe

 This week I am tapping into your cuisine talents. I am looking for broccoli salad recipes as it is one of SO's favorites. Sometimes we get the Broccoli Salad at Safeway. I like their broccoli salad recipe too, but don't have the recipe. I am using a recipe that I learnt from watching a Paula Deen's video, but I have modified it so much that it isn't exactly like hers anymore. You're welcome to try it out, or print this post with bixolon and let me know how you like it. The recipe is at the bottom of this post.

Aside from that, a little update on Thursday Two Questions. I've enjoyed reading your questions and comments. I've learned  a lot by reading them, so thanks for sharing. I kept wanting to go back and publish some of your questions that were very interesting, but haven't had time to yet. I will get to it one of these days...so don't be surprised if you happen to see your questions here one of these days...smiles.

  1. I love broccoli, and I like to steam them or stir fried them the most. I could eat raw broccoli, but don't really like that much!

  2. I actually don't like broccoli unless there is melted cheddar cheese on top :) It does however have many health benefits so I should eat it once in a while.

    1. I like my brocoli soup, it's one of my famous soups...:-) I don't cook it well done, just barely enough to bring it to a nice green.

  3. i do eat and love broccoli, even though it's not at the top in my list of favorite vegetables :) the reason simply because i do not know how to make it or cook it that will taste as good as how others make it :)

    i usually just eat my broccoli raw or lightly steamed.

  5. My kids and I love broccoli. We normally served it steam in soup, noodles etc. I don't have any special recipe for it as it is added in most dishes that we make at home.

  6. Yummy, that looks so good. I love broccoli any way it is served.
    I really don't have a recipe since my favorite way to eat broccoli is lightly steamed. I also add the raw florets to salads sometimes.

  7. I like broccoli and so do my kids. Not raw though, it has to be boiled or steamed or grilled. While I do not have a broccoli recipe, when boiling our broccoli I usually add beef or chicken bouillon cubes to give the broccoli a little flavor.

    1. That's an idea. I always struggle with flavoring brocoli.

  8. Sounds good! I can't eat nuts so would omit the sunflower seeds. For those who don't particularlly like brocolic that could be substituted or cut down by adding a bunch of 'torn' lettuce.

  10. 1. I like Broccoli when I cook it :) I add spice and stuff and the kids love it like that. I think if I made just steam broccoli, I'd have tears and fights.

    2. Not really. I just stirfry with other vegetables and pasta or with chicken.

    Happy weekend!
    Off to visit the others.

  11. I don't have a broccoli recipe I think you'd like. Basically, I just cook it in butter and a veg oxo cube and a bit of basil. The kids like vegetables cooked simply, and I have to do this if I want them to eat it.

    I don't mind broccoli. I won't say I'm crazy about it, but I don't mind eating it.

  13. LOVE broccoli and find it amazing that it is such a polarizing vegetable! One of my favorite episodes of Seinfeld is the "broccoli" episode with Newman!

    No recipes to share but a funny tale to tell: I once had a co-worker who, like Newman, HATED broccoli! As a joke, another co-worker once bestowed upon him the gift of a handmade broccoli necklace and made him wear it all day! (The things young blondes can get aging bald men to do!)

    Have a fabulous weekend, my friend!
