I have been making broccoli salad a lot this spring/summer.  I can always get my kids to eat broccoli salad.  I am totally fine with mixing broccoli with a sugar-mayonnaise sauce if it get’s my kids to enthusiastically eat their vegetables.

I have a lot of Broccoli Salad Recipes on this blog.   But this Mango Poppyseed Broccoli Salad is the latest favorite in our house.

During this pandemic, I have been buying a lot of frozen and dried fruit for when our supply of fresh fruit runs dry.  I think that frozen pineapple and frozen mango might be my family’s new favorite foods!  I also added dried mango to this broccoli salad.  Dried mango is a high-demand item in our house as well.

Broccoli salad is easy to throw together, you can make it in advance or right before a meal.  All you need is a few ingredients!

In order to make this Mango Broccoli Salad, you will need:

8 cups of broccoli

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup of dried mango

1/2 cup thawed frozen mango chunks, or you can use fresh mango.

1/4 cup sun flower seeds

green onions

poppyseed dressing.  Store bought or you can make your own.

And that’s it!
