Wednesday’s Helping: Other Broccoli Salad Fixings

Some cool substitutions

Tweak our original rendition to keep a palette of rotating flavors for this dish.  If you’re out of imitation crab meat -- we suggest canned crab meat, canned shrimp, or diced (cooked) shrimp.  Meanwhile, we suggest substituting the crushed egg for 3/4 cup loose corn or blanched and chopped carrot pieces.  Wanna go completely vegetarian?  Substitute the seafood component for ½ cup sliced sundried tomatoes in that come bottled in olive oil.  Remember that 1/3 cup bacon bits or 1/3 cup minced olives can also add a savory flavor dimension to this salad.
