Broccoli Grape Nut Salad (Easy and Economical!)

This past weekend, we got together with family to celebrate the holiday. It was great to see everyone and of course, the beloved cousins! It's fun to catch up and see how well they get along, we are quite lucky! We are also quite lucky to have feasted on some delicious salads and grilled food! Including this broccoli salad! A different take on the broccoli salad you might have had in the past with raisins, this one uses grapes to give it a slight sweetness, sunflower seeds for an extra crunch and broccoli for it's benefit! Different but certainly yummy, judging by the fact that it was completely gone at the end of the day, I think we will be making it a lot this Summer! Extra bonus? The kids loved it so that's always a plus in my book! 
2 heads of broccoli, cut
1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced
1 cup sliced red grapes
3 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds
1/4 Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Sour Cream
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper
  1. Toss your vegetables and grapes in a large bowl.
  2. In a seperate bowl, combone your mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice.
  3. Pour dressing over your salad, top with sunflower seeds and toss again
  4. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Enjoy
Did you make any delicious, new recipes this past weekend?  Linking up at Carole's Chatter!


  1. Looks delicious! My daughter and I are starting on Hungry Girl diet today and I believe this can be adapted. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

  2. This was delicious! I will definitely be making it...actually I might make it today since I have all the ingredients in the fridge. And it is wonderful to see how well the cousins get along :-) Always puts a smile on my face!

  3. Oooh, I do hope you'll bring these over to Food on Friday: Broccoli/Brussels Sprouts. Cheers from CArole's Chatter

  4. Great combination of flavors and textures! I'm sure this is one delicious salad!! Isn't it nice when getting together with family is actually enjoyable? (It is for me too....most of the time!)

  5. Sounds like a fun holiday get together! This salad sounds delicious, and I really love the idea of grapes mixed in. Hopefully, we will have broccoli in the garden soon, and I will be trying your recipe!
