Kitchen Spotlight: Broccoli Super Salad

So, the other day I decided I was going to make this broccoli salad.

The problem is that I evidently wasn’t paying any attention when I started putting the ingredients together, and instead of just 1/4 cup of red onion, I put a whole red onion in.  Oops. I didn’t realize it until after I’d already mixed in other stuff, including the dressing. I couldn’t really take any out at that point.  So I just started adding other stuff to try to play down the onion and balance the flavors.

I had already decided to use grapes instead of raisins (I used green grapes rather than red because they were cheaper). But I added in even more grapes than I had planned on. I also added in 1 (15 oz.) can of chickpeas, several handfuls of shredded cheese, extra bacon, extra sunflower kernels, extra white vinegar, some extra sugar, and lemon juice.

By my next taste test, it was vastly improved. And I’ve actually enjoyed it as a side to the pulled pork sandwiches we’ve been eating this week. I have decided to call it Broccoli Super Salad since it took way longer than it should have and includes so many extras. 🙂
