Recipe Two from Gooseberry Patch’s Homestyle in a Hurry!


This is such a great cookbook.  As you saw I had so many recipes marked in my copy marked and can’t wait to make each and every one of them!  This caught my eye right away.  I had a raised bed full of  “second pickings” broccoli and what better to make than a fresh brocolli salad!

Here’s your recipe and another chance to win a copy of this wonderful NEW Gooseberry Patch cookbook! Just leave a comment.  Oh…and be sure and make this salad – it is wonderful!


Broccoli Salad Deluxe


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, cut into flowerets and chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 6 ounces sweet dried cranberries
  • 2 1/4 ounce slivered almonds, toasted
  • 3/4 cup dried apricots, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Add remaining ingredient; toss together.  Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 6 hours before serving.  Makes 8-10 servings.

YES!  It was as delicious as it was beautiful!!!


Best of luck – I wish you could all win!  However since that’s not possible, as soon as we all congratulate the winner on January 22, and if you are not that lucky duck, zip over to Gooseberry Patch and get yourself a copy of Homestyle in a Hurry.  Oh heck ~ go ahead and order several – they make great gifts for all your foodie friends.  Now leave me a comment and get your name in.
