Salad Dressing


  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil over high heat.

  2. In a large bowl, combine 4 cups of water and 4 cups of ice to create an ice bath, and set aside. 

  3. Add broccoli florets to the boiling water and cook until bright green and crisp-tender, but not too soft, about 2 - 3 minutes. 

  4. Immediately transfer the drained broccoli to the ice bath for about 5 minutes or until cool. Drain the broccoli into a colander and shake off any excess water. 

  5. In a large bowl, mix together the broccoli, cranberries, sunflower seeds, red onion, and cheddar cheese. 

Salad Dressing

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, honey, water, dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
