Marinated Broccoli

One of our family's favorite side dishes is marinated broccoli. It is simply raw broccoli cut into bite-size pieces and marinated over night in a vinaigrette. Quick, easy, and healthy. We always fall back to this recipe for company and family dinners alike.

Marinated Broccoli

1 lb. fresh broccoli--wash, cut into bite-size pieces

Mix together:
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. dry dill weed
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt

Pour over broccoli and marinate 24 hours in refrigerator. Turn a few times. Enjoy!

Julie's notes: Add grape or cherry tomatoes just before serving, if desired. Always use cider vinegar. Marinating this in a ziplock bag works really well.


I had a few requests for the stuffed onions recipe Rachel made for Abby's birthday dinner. It is from Julia Child's The Way to Cook. I found a link here. Rachel omits the wine, and adds more cream to the stuffing. Stuffed onions take time to prepare, but they are fabulous.
