Spicy Broccoli Salad Recipe

  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons rice-wine vinegar or distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt to taste
  1. Cut off broccoli florets. Trim and peel stems; cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place broccoli florets and stems in a steamer basket over boiling water; cover and steam until cooked but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Refresh under cold water. Drain well.
  2. Stir together bell pepper, onion, vinegar, oil, brown sugar and crushed red pepper in a serving bowl. Just before serving, add the broccoli and toss to combine. Season with salt.
