How to make broccoli salad.
Divide the broccoli into florets. Pour water into a pot, add a teaspoon of salt and bring it to boil. When the water starts to boil, put in the broccoli florets. Cook on a medium heat for 6 minutes. Once cooked, drain off the water and let the broccoli cool down.
Hard-boil the eggs (7-9 minutes). Cool, peel and cut them into medium-sized cubes.
Cut the chicken ham into small chunks.
Peel the pickles and grate them on a large-mesh grater. Afterwards, squeeze their juice out.
Put the broccoli, ham, eggs, pickles and the finely chopped dill into a bowl.
Combine the mayonnaise with cream, salt and pepper in a cup. Cover the ingredients in the bowl with the sauce and mix it all well.
Good to know when making broccoli salad.
If you would like to make less caloric salad, replace the mayonnaise and cream with natural joghurt.
Any type of ham will work in this salad – chicken, turkey or pork. Use whatever ham you like the most.
You must not boil the broccoli for too long, otherwise it will fall apart in the salad.
