There were many things on the list of Do Not Want as a kid:
- brussel sprouts
- uncooked broccoli
- sauer kraut
They were all too sour, too sharp, too hot, too spicey, or just plain bitey & gag inducing. As an adult I’ve made friends with all but the last three.
Some friends of ours had us over for dinner and hanging out, and I loved this salad enough to ask for the recipe. I present to thee, Broccoli Salad with sunflower seeds & cranberries.
If that had been put in front of me when I was 7 I would’ve said I wasn’t hungry. As for now, I went back for seconds. And I’m going to make my own!
