Broccoli and Cherry Salad

Share this!

Two things that go great together – broccoli and maraschino cherries.

We love salads all year round. This is a great one to serve in the heat of the summer with fresh from the grill goodness or in the middle of the winter with something yummy baked in the oven. Sometimes the magic of the best recipes comes when mixing ingredients unexpected. That is how this happened. The kids asked me to add the cherries to the family recipe as I was making it and BAM — it turned out amazing.

Believe it or not, these two things just GO together!

  1. Could you clarify a couple of the ingredients please? I presume you mean 1/3 (not 3/3) cup of cherries, but do you really mean 1 Tablespoon of pepper? If that is the correct amount, do you mean regular black pepper? Your photo doesn’t really look like freshly ground black pepper but I just can’t tell. Thank you for helping me out.
