Broccoli Is Back

Trust lowly broccoli to make a surprise comeback. Just when you thought locally-raised fiddleheads were the last word in trendy green vegetables, all sorts of pictures like this start showing up on the web:

Broccoli Slaw

Um, yes please!

Now instead of staring blankly at the broccoli display at the grocery store, wondering what I could possibly cook with it (besides the old stand-by stir-fry), I am daydreaming about making a giant dish of this Broccoli Slaw:

Affordable, hardy, beloved by nutritionists and moms and now a hot food trend, too. Well done, broccoli.
