This salad can be prepared in many ways. Perhaps Bev is including her recipe that she shared with us when we visited John and Gena in 1985. I used memories of that and the recipe Nellie Ann shared with at our Christmas 1992 to mix up a version we enjoyed for dinner at Lyle’s apartment, 2809 Lincoln Way Apt 309 in Sioux City, on the day of his graduation from Morningside College. We also made a similar salad for Sunday dinner at Lisa and Lana’s apartment after helping them move to 421 Bowery Street #2 in Iowa City. On that occasion I enjoyed an early morning walk about 12 blocks each way to get sunflower seeds and dressing.
- 1 bunch of broccoli (cut into pieces)
- 1 cup sunflower seeds (or chow mein noodles)
- 6 slices American cheese (cut into pieces)
- 4 slices ham (cut into pieces)
