Then I found out Traci already made one — using a recipe she got from our other sister-in-law, Dawn.
Having now tried both, I think next time I want broccoli salad I’ll make a hybrid of the two.
I like the mandarin oranges and kicky dressing, which incorporates horseradish, in Darcy’s salad. But I also like the sunflower seeds and chopped onion in Dawn’s version.
Here’s my proposed hybrid broccoli salad recipe:
For the salad:
4 cups chopped broccoli
1 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup sunflower seed kernels
1. Mix the dressing ingredients.
2. Mix the salad ingredients.
3. Mix the dressing and the salad.
