FIRST AND FOREMOST: OBVIOUSLY this would be good with bacon added in right at the end and incorporated per serving.
OK. I just NEEDED you to know… I’m thinking of you, BACON.
With THAT out of the way. Let’s talk about how delicious this is; and healthy, and easy, and just darn-right great.
talk talk talk.
CHILLED BROCCOLI SALAD WITH CORN, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, CARAMELIZED RED ONION AND GOAT CHEESE
Ingredients: Broccoli, salted roasted sunflower seeds, plain goat cheese, one red onion, fresh white corn, salt, olive oil or coconut oil
Gather your ingredients.
Chop your broccoli into bite-size pieces or smaller.
Steam your broc, keeping it slightly crunchy. Yum.
Thinly slice half of a red onion. If you’re a big fan, obviously adding more is up to you. But I used half of a relatively small one.
Caramelize with coconut oil or olive oil. Again, your choice. I did coconut oil… I thought that the richness of it would add something nice to the dish, which, it does. But if you don’t like it or are allergic, olive oil is fine.
The onions soften pretty fast because they are sliced so thin, so keep the heat low and keep your eye on them.
Make yourself a Gin and Ginger.
Retrieve your steamed corn and cut it off the cob.
At this moment in this process you should have your broccoli set aside, your eyes on your almost-done onions, your corn steamed and cut off the cob, and a drink in your hand.
Your handy-dandy sunflower seeds should be just that… handy.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ingredients and crumble in your goat cheese.
Salt to taste and chill, until, well, chilled.
Taste-test to make sure it’s not deadly to the people you’re serving it to.
Eat and Enjoy .
