Broccoli Curry Salad
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes
1 L (4 cups) fresh broccoli, trimmed and coarsely chopped
75 mL (1/3 cup) Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
125 mL (1/2 cup) golden raisins
10 mL (2 tsp) fresh lemon juice 10 mL
5 mL (1 tsp) curry powder
50 mL (1/4 cup) sliced almonds, toasted
Cook broccoli in lightly salted boiling water for 2 minutes; drain. Place broccoli in a bowl of ice water to stop further cooking; drain well, and pat with a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except almonds. Chill until ready to serve. To serve, stir in almonds and season if desired with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Did you know? Mayonnaise is better for you than you might think. Good fats like omega-3 fats help our bodies to absorb a range of vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K. Vegetable omega-3 fats are an essential part of a healthy balanced diet because our bodies do not naturally produce them. So we have to eat them daily, through foods like canola and flaxseed oil, walnuts, or mayonnaise.
