I am asked for this broccoli salad recipe all the time, especially during the summer, so I am amazed that I haven’t shared it with you before. So we’ll take care of that right now so that our GREAT friends, the Scisciani’s can add this to the dishes they can take and enjoy as they head out to the Outer Banks for a family vacation!
I’ve been busy, as you can see in the Corn, Watermelon and Summer Salsa articles, making all sorts of salsas! One constant in most salsa recipes is the cilantro herb. Herbs are not cheap nowadays so I am always trying to keep them as fresh as I can for as long as I can.
So how do I keep my cilantro fresh and ready to use for my salsa recipes?
While going through my recipe box for my Cucumber Tomato Salad recipe I stumbled across this favorite! It’s been published by various people over the years in a variety of adaptations, and I have no idea anymore where it originated first, but this is my take on this summer favorite.
Since we just published our Cucumber and Tomato Salad recipe I thought it was very timely that I just now read an article about storing cucumbers. Years ago I was in Costco buying a whole container of tomatoes and who ends up standing next to me but the produce manager of a large local supermarket. When I commented that I didn’t know what they did to their tomatoes but they sure do last a long time he said that they’d last even longer sitting in a colander on my counter. Seems that tomatoes are one vegetable that really don’t like it cold.
