This week I made broccoli salad...
Very simple and easy to put together, it takes about 5 minutes including prep time. :)
One broccoli bunch, stems removed and flowers chopped into pieces
about a cup of strawberries, sliced
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayo
handful of sunflower seeds (not quite a quarter cup)
Chop broccoli and strawberries. Combine mayo and yogurt in a bowl, add the broccoli and stir until it's well coated. Add sunflower seeds, mix. Add strawberry slices and mix them in but gently so they don't all break apart. Cover and refridgerate for at least one hour before eating.
Watermelon and Shrimp Salad
Watermelon (I used red and yellow melon)
Crumbled Feta Cheese
Salt, pepper, garlic salt to taste
I didn't put measurements because I just improvised with this dish.
Mix orange juice (I used 3tbs) and lime juice (2tbs) in bowl. Cut up melon in chunks. Cut up mint leaves in strips. Mix all together and refrigerate for 1-4 hours. (I did around 3)
Peel, devein and wash shrimp. Soak in cold water to take away the fishy taste. Mix 2 tbs lime juice, 1tbs of olive oil, and seasonings in bowl and add shrimp. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Cook shrimp on grill or in pan til pink.
Toss in crumbled feta and shrimp into the watermelon salad.
Serve, enjoy :)
You are so awesome. It always seems when a series of contests are started something is happening with the OP. An update, the doctors say my grandmother will not make it to the new year. I had another fainting episode so back to the Cardiologist to go for tests. And Alivia is sick again and on another round of antibiotics, scheduling her for tubes and an Adenoidectomy:(
