It’s been a while. A seven months kinda while. But. I’m feeling inspired again!
Since I last saw you my city girl life has found me in the Richmond countryside. Quite the change wouldn’t you say? 😉
See updated “About Me” page if you’d like!
A change that has not only been wonderful for so many reasons, but also one that has sparked a resurgence of my kitchen inspiration! Something about those long range views and clean fresh air really makes cooking that much more enjoyable 🙂
And since it’s summer. And since I love (1) an easy recipe (2) Chobani Greek yogurt and (3) a lightened up and refreshing dish that still tastes delicious. I knew that this would be the one to share with you.
This broccoli salad came as a request. The exact request of “a crunchy broccoli salad” … lots of direction there, huh? So I decided to get some ingredients together and see if I was up for the challenge!
The result. All the thumbs up. All of them. This broccoli salad has the fun twist of crunchy sunflower seeds and tangy lemon, topped off with that sharp taste of cheddar that I’m not sure anyone could turn down. Except my sister. She could. But she hates cheese. A concept that after 26 years I am yet to understand…
But I digress.
This broccoli salad would be a delicious addition to any meal. Or the perfect side dish to bring a warm weather get together. Heck, it’s even great just for an after work snack, trust me on that 🙂
And the best part. It only takes 5 minutes to throw together.
So with that. Enjoy!
