Broccoli salad with creamy feta dressing is originally a raw vegetable salad recipe, but I found the broccoli too tough, so I decided to steam it. This hearty salad goes well with steaks and other grilled meats. Adjust the taste of the dressing by adding more of the ingredients that you like. Enjoy!
Makes 4 servings
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 ounces broccoli crowns, trimmed and finely chopped
4 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thinly
Salt to taste
Combine the yogurt, feta cheese, lemon juice, garlic, freshly ground pepper and salt in a large bowl. Whisk until all the ingredients are well combined.
Steam the broccoli for 5-8 minutes or until it becomes bright green and crunchy. Place it in the bowl with the yogurt and cheese mixture.
Add the tomatoes and bell pepper. Toss to coat the vegetables in the dressing. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
