1 bunch of broccoli cut into large spears
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup dried currants (or raisins, or craisins or other dried fruit)
2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1-2 tablespoons honey (I used our summer honey for this)
salt and pepper to taste.
Bring a large pot of water to boil and add about a teaspoon of salt. Prepare a bowl of ice water. Put the broccoli spears in the boiling water and blanch until the spears turn bright green. Drain and immediately plunge into the ice water. Drain the spears, drying well, and chop into about a 1/2 inch dice and put in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine well. Taste and check seasonings. Serve cold. Makes about four servings.
