Mary Taylor's Broccoli Salad

Hands down, this is my favorite side dish.  A few weeks ago Mary Taylor made this and I have been dreaming about it ever since then.  Taylor tried it last night (and he does not like nuts in anything) and he liked it.  I think he was surprised.

1 bunch of broccoli finely chopped
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 T olive oil
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t salt
salt and black pepper to taste
2 T of raisins
3 oz of feta cheese
2 T red wine vinegar
1 T olive oil
1 clove of garlic
1/8 t of ground nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Toss the broccoli,  1 T olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper together.  Spread onto a single layer on a pan to put in the oven.  Roast for around 15 minutes.  Pour into a serving dish and let cool for 10 minutes.  Add the feta and raisins after cool.

Mix the vinegar, 1 T of olive oil, garlic, and nutmeg in a small bowl.  Add this to the broccoli mixture and toss to combine. Is excellent to serve immediately but you can also make ahead and it will keep for up to 2 day in the fridge.  (The sunflower seeds will not have the crunch if you wait to serve though.)
