Oh my...PREGNANCY CRAVINGS!
They are seriously weirding me out.
I'm not a picky eater and I normally don't really crave certain foods.
But lately...it's been sushi, peanut butter toast, avocados, dried fruit, Jimmy John's sandwiches, apples and oranges...not weird foods, just feels weird to obsess about eating these things!
Last week, I had a serving of a salad that's normally on my "Eat Once a Year" list.
You know, those salads that you don't really make for your family, so you enjoy them once a year at the large church Thanksgiving potluck dinner. Then you're good for a whole year...
This time, the salad did not leave my mind:
Broccoli, bacon, raisins, sunflower seeds, creamy dressing.
I just kept thinking about how good it was and how good it would taste to have again.
However, I was certain my family would not touch this crazy savory and sweet combination, so I had to alter the recipe down from it's feed-an-army-size. (I also altered it with a few things I was craving along the way...it feels weird to mix oddly paired ingredients and really like it!) So, if you're pregnant and craving weird things, you just might like this salad!
Londa's Crazy Broccoli Salad
1 small head of broccoli, cur into small pieces
3 strips of bacon, crumbled
golden raisins (a handful or two)
dried apricots (just a few cut up small)
sunflower seeds (a couple of handfuls)
dried bing cherrries (just a handful)
3 tablespoons light mayo
2 tsp. vinegar (more to thin the dressing, if needed)
2 tsp. agave nectar
Mix broccoli, bacon, seeds and fruit.
Mix dressing in a small bowl and toss with the rest of the salad.
So how about it...want me to serve you up some salad?
