This pretty, super simple broccoli salad is a perfect idea for a pot luck dinner. It’s ready in minutes and stores well in the refrigerator.
2 large heads broccoli, florets cut to bite size
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons raisins, divided
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup pomegranate juice
pomegranate kernels, optional
Combine broccoli, a 1/4 cup of the raisins, seeds and onion in large bowl.
