Garlic Green Salad

10 Min

Here's a quickie that's not only a salad, but also a super snack to have on hand. Watch it disappear! I like to add the broccoli stems, also, so I peel them, cut them into 1/2-inch slices, and cook them with the rest of the broccoli. Green beans work well, too - or maybe try a combination of green beans and broccoli.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped, or 2 teaspoons bottled chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large bunch broccoli, cut into medium-sized florets, or 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli spears, thawed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Grated lemon or lime rind for garnish

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic, salt, and pepper.

  2. Boil or steam the broccoli for 5 to 6 minutes (3 to 4 minutes for frozen broccoli), just until crisp-tender. Plunge the broccoli into a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking and to retain its bright green color. Drain well

  3. Add broccoli to the mayonnaise/sour cream mixture. Refrigerate until chilled. Garnish with lemon or lime rind.
