Broccoli Stems & Stalks Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 6-8 cups mixed salad greens
  • Stems/stalks from two bunches of broccoli, cut into thin, bite-size matchstick type pieces
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • ½ – ¾ cup dried cranberries

Dressing:

  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons very finely minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Make dressing by whisking all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl or measuring cup. Add mixed greens, matchstick broccoli pieces, red onion and cranberries to a large bowl, then drizzle half of dressing over all. Toss lightly and add a little more dressing if desired.

Or just place greens on individual serving plates, top with some broccoli matchsticks, red onion and cranberries, then drizzle salad dressing over that.

Makes about 4-6 servings salad.
