This is one salad that I can have on it's own, without any accompanying meal! Utterly delicious with an awesome sweet and salty combination, and you will find yourself taking second and third helpings easily! It goes well with bbq's of any kind, roasts, pasta dishes, burgers, etc.

head of broccoli, cut into florets and cleaned well
small carrot, grated
small firm ripe tomato, cut into cubes (you can even use halved plum tomatoes)
small red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup
sweet corn, drained
1/4 cup
roasted cashewnuts (or almonds)
1/4 cup
1/2 cup
(or mix quarter cup thick yoghurt with quarter cup mayo)
2-3 tbsp
1 tbsp
lemon juice or white vinegar

Combine the broccoli florets, chopped tomato, grated carrot, sweet corn, chopped onion, raisins and the cashews, mix well.

In a small bowl mix the mayonnaise (and yoghurt if you're using it), sugar, and lemon/vinegar. Beat with a fork until smooth and creamy. Pour this dressing into the salad and stir carefully until everything is coated. Chill this salad for a few hours and serve!

Enjoy! :)

W/Salaam Rina, thanks dear. And no do not boil the broccoli for this recipe, just chop into florets then clean/rinse it well and drain. Boiling will make the broccoli limp and soggy in the salad. Needs to be fresh and crisp.

aww thnkx alot for the feedback inshALLAH i will let u knw the result soon

Absolutely ok. In fact, it will make it healthier. :) Mayo gives a richer taste.
