Spicy Broccoli Salad

Comment on this recipe

A dash of garlic powder is a great addition for garlic lovers. If using, add the garlic powder to the wet ingredients so the flavor can incorporate prior to tossing with broccoli.

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds broccoli
3 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
3 tablespoons chopped red onion
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt to taste

Instructions

Cut off broccoli florets. Trim and peel stems and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Place broccoli florets and stems in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp tender. Remove basket from pan. Refresh broccoli under running cold water. Let stand and drain well. In a medium bowl, stir together red pepper, onion, vinegar, oil, brown sugar and red pepper flakes. Just before serving, add the drained, cooled broccoli and toss to combine. Season with salt.
