French Dressing Broccoli Salad
by Jes Mostek
serves: 12
  If you're making this recipe as a side salad and you're concerned about left-overs, only add the dressing to the portion that you'll use today. The remaining (undressed) salad will stay crisp in the fridge for 3-5 days.
Ingredients:
  1 bunch   fresh broccoli
  1 bag (8 oz.)   julienne (matchstick) carrots
  3/4 c.   raisins, plumped
  1/2 c.   sunflower seeds
  1 c.   white cheese crumbles (or curds)
  1/2 c.   french dressing
Directions:
  To plump raisins, cover raisins with water in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes. Set aside.

Rinse and chop broccoli.

Drain raisins.

Toss broccoli, carrots, plumped raisins, sunflower seeds, cheese, and french dressing in a large bowl. Serve immediately.

Hint: to turn this salad into a complete meal, just add some cooked diced chicken! Of course, then this recipe will only serve 4 people.
