Broccoli Salad- Made with Yogurt and Dates

Broccoli Salad- made with yogurt and dates by Ng @ What's for Dinner?Broccoli Salad can be found at just about any North American BBQ or potluck. The classic recipe being a mix of broccoli, raisins, red onion, mayo, sunflower seeds and bacos. While my mom never used bacos or bacon she stayed close to the classic recipe. I love yogurt and it is no surpise that I'm using the plain stuff in place of mayo. Saeid doesn't like raisins so I'm using dates, but so many other dried or fresh fruits work well in this recipe. Try using some pomegranates in the fall it works like a treat!

  1. The salad looks good. I may try it with 1/2 yogurt, 1/2 mayo. Not sure about the cumin. Still looking for morels, have not forgotten about the rissotto challenge. Can't wait until I visit you, I want to help you make something for your blog. Maybe I'll bring some bison with me.

  2. Saeid would love that! He has been walkin around singing "buffalo burger" but I'm not sure if you are allowed.

    Cumin gives the smokiness that is missing without the bacon. If it is still cheap bring a box of the smoked paprika which would also be tasty in this salad.

    On a side note cumin and nettles do not go well together as i found out yesterday.

  3. Maybe yogurt would have tied the nettles and cumin together. I will have to think of some kind of allowable Kansan food to bring to Ireland.

  4. There was yogurt in my nettle and cumin soup! Want me to save some for you?

  5. No thank you! But when I visit, I definitely want you to teach me how to make the tadik rice, with potatoes on the bottom.
