Dear Cancer Project supporter,

This colorful salad, dressed with a creamy sweet and sour dressing, is a delicious way to eat broccoli, one of Mother Nature’s most healthful foods.


Makes about 4 1-cup serving

2 medium broccoli stalks
2 or 3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons dairy- and egg-free mayonnaise substitute
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon raw or turbinado sugar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cut broccoli florets into bite-size pieces. Peel stems and cut into bite-size pieces. Transfer to a salad bowl and add green onions, carrots, raisins, and cranberries.

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise substitute, vinegar, sugar, and black pepper. Pour over broccoli and toss to mix. Let stand about 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to blend.
