Chef Ashley's World Famous Broccoli Salad

By Christa S. from Hobe Sound Elementary, Hobe Sound Florida.


This mouth watering recipe takes broccoli and gives it an Asian flavor with juicy sweetness of honey blended with tangy ginger, crisp green broccoli florets and chow mein noodles for an added crunch. The sauce is mild and dazzles all the taste buds while the cilantro and green onion add zest to the dish!

The broccoli, cilantro and green onion were first washed, cut and put aside. Next we used a 5 gallon pot to boil water in which we blanched the broccoli for just one minute. This leaves a lot of nutritional factors in the broccoli. Then the broccoli was chilled in the fridge for 20 minutes. Next the sauces were mixed together, and the chow mein noodles were broken by hand into bite size pieces. We mixed all the wet ingredients by hand together with the broccoli, and then topped the dish with the chow mein noodles.
