Fast dinners that satisfy with little prep require a quick chop and mix. Tonight was one of those nights. With lots of broccoli to use up and I wanted something with some crunch, I decided to make a quick broccoli salad.
Traditional broccoli salads usually are made with raw broccoli and lots of mayo and bacon. I like my broccoli to be bright green and some of the rawness taken out so I steamed it for just a minute to get it bright green then I took it out of the steamer and rinsed it with cold water. You could blanch it if you want, but I didn't want to wait for a full pot of water to boil, so I steamed it. I believe it makes it a prettier salad.
