Pomegranate and Citrus Broccoli Salad

I always include this salad sometime during the holiday season.   Served with a turkey or ham adds a lot of bright color to your dinner table.  An interesting combination of ingredients that many of my friends and family enjoy.  See also my recipe Cooking Tidbits – How to Seed a Pomegranate.

Pomegranate and Citrus Broccoli Salad

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups (8 oz.) fresh broccoli florets, chopped
  • 1 can mandarine oranges or use a fresh orange
  • 3/4 cup fresh pomegranate seeds (these are seasonal and can be found around Thanksgiving time – I also found frozen ones at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/3 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp. red onion, chopped

Combine mayonnaise, orange juice, sugar and salt and pepper to taste.  Add remaining ingredients and toss until well coated.   This salad can be made a day ahead of time – perfect for when there are so many other things to do for your holiday celebrations.
