Marinated Broccoli

Marinated Broccoli

A friend brought a marinated broccoli salad to a cookout this past weekend. I quickly became obsessed and had to duplicate it!

I found a recipe that sounded similar to my friends recipe. Here’s what I started with: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1016146-broccoli-salad-with-garlic-and-sesame. I typically tweak recipes to suit my family’s tastes and preferences.

Broccoli is a great source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron and potassium…folate and manganese too! Sesame oil adds a yummy smoky flavor with healthy fatty acids and known benefits of lowering LDL cholesterol and reducing inflammation. Olive oil also adds healthy fatty acids which are known to support healthy cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation.

Additionally I used shallots instead of garlic because we like the sweeter, milder flavor of shallots. Garlic will work too!

Definitely a keeper recipe! And check out my other favorite recipes!

I purchased the organic broccoli from Aldi and shallots were from Wal-mart.
