Broccoli Feta Tomato Salad

June 23, 2011


Author Notes: This salad combines some of my favorite tastes and looks pretty with the green, white and red (or yellow or orange, depending upon your tomatoes). It's a quick one to make and easy to take on a picnic, too.BlueKaleRoad

Directions

  1. Steam the broccoli florets lightly and run under cold water to cool. You want to soften them a bit but make sure they still have some crunch.
  2. Combine broccoli, feta, tomatoes and hazelnuts in a serving bowl.
  3. Whisk or shake the oils, vinegar, garlic, agave nectar, mustard, salt and pepper until emulsified.
  4. Toss salad with dressing and serve. If taking on a picnic, bring dressing in a little jar and toss before serving.
