Five ingredients and 10 minutes is all you need to make this delicious salad – perfect for a side dish.
cups fresh broccoli florets
small plum (Roma) tomatoes, chopped (2/3 cup)
cup reduced-fat feta cheese
tablespoons fat-free balsamic vinaigrette
teaspoons chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
In 2-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling over high heat. Add broccoli; cook 10 to 20 seconds or until broccoli is bright green. Drain broccoli; rinse in cold water until cool.
In small serving bowl, stir broccoli and remaining ingredients.
Cooking the broccoli for a very short time, called blanching. It brings out the bright green color of the broccoli and softens it just a bit.
Chopped red onion and diced red bell pepper would be nice additions to this salad, too.
