Serves - approx. six 1 cup servings, as a salad course
2 cups chopped broccoli florets
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
½ cup chopped sweet red bell pepper
½ cup chopped carrots
¼ cup chopped red onion
½ cup chopped walnuts
¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
½ cup dark raisins
½ cup dried currants
½ cup calorie-wise light mayonnaise
¼ cup liquid honey
3 tablespoons vinegar
Clean & chop broccoli, bell peppers, carrots, & onion. In a large bowl, gently toss together chopped vegetables, raisins, currants, nuts & seeds.
In a small separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, honey, and vinegar until creamy smooth. Pour over the salad ingredients in large bowl. With a large rubber spatula, mix the salad gently until all the ingredients are thoroughly coated in dressing.
Cover & refrigerate until ready to serve.
This colorful salad is always a favorite at large barbeque get-togethers. Believe it or not, despite the broccoli, even the children really seem to enjoy it. They still tend to pick out the onions though.
