Directions:

  1. Blanch the Broccoli:
    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and blanch for about 1-2 minutes until they are bright green but still crisp. Immediately drain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain well.
  2. Prepare the Dressing:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, honey, minced garlic, and Dijon mustard until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Combine the Salad:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine blanched broccoli, crumbled feta cheese, chopped red onion, toasted sunflower seeds, and dried cranberries.
    • Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Chill and Serve:
    • Allow the salad to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This helps the flavors meld together.
    • Toss once more before serving to redistribute the dressing and ingredients.
