Broccoli SaladIf you’ve ever had a Broccoli Salad before, you’ll understand the reason why this salad has become such a popular side dish at parties, buffets, and potlucks – it’s just so flipping GOOD! My spin on this well loved dish uses a few variant ingredients to keep it a bit lighter and more heart healthy. The crunchy broccoli and walnuts are combined with onions and raisins, then topped with a creamy, sweet, and tangy dressing that is insanely delicious. There are lots of variations to this salad, so you can definitely alternate/add/eliminate other ingredients if you want to shake things up. Try it with carrots, bacon, pumpkin seeds, candied pecans, dried, cranberries, kale, or even roasted brussel sprouts.I highly recommend adding this as a side dish to one of your favorite dinners, or adding some grilled chicken to it and serving it as a lunch salad.
