When we say “raw broccoli salad,” we’re often met with looks of skepticism. But, one bite of this juicy grape, tart cranberry and fresh broccoli salad – creamy, crispy, sweet, sour and salty – is all it takes to make believers even out of the biggest salad cynic!


2 large heads of broccoli, chopped into small florets
1 1/2 cups red or green grapes, halved
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup salted sunflower seeds

Creamy Dressing

2 /3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
5 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp white vinegar


1) In a large bowl, combine uncooked broccoli, grapes, celery, cranberries and sunflower seeds. Set aside.

2) For the dressing, in a medium bowl, whisk mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar and white vinegar. Pour dressing over broccoli mixture and mix well. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

Serves 6-8
