Broccoli Craisin Salad

Our Summer/Fall CSA boxes are in full swing with all the wonderful weather we've been receiving.  This week we got a box brimming with spring onions, broccoli, basil, zucchini and more!  Since I had purchased broccoli (as I didn't expect it to appear in the box for a few weeks, but with the warmer weather it ripened sooner!) I decided that dinner tonight was going to feature a broccoli salad.  I'm fortunate that my children enjoy broccoli and moreso because it came straight from the Cooper's!!!  This is a breeze to put together and so colourful and delicious you might make it a regular part of your family's dinners!!!

4 cups broccoli florets
1 cup chopped red peppers
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup Craisins
1/2 cup raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
4 spring onions, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 tbsp dark agave syrup
  • In a large serving bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar and agave syrup until well combined.  Pour over the vegetables and toss to coat.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour prior to serving.
