Don’t hate me, but I have a child who ADORES broccoli.
It’s her favorite vegetable and her number one preference when given a choice for dinner vegetables. Because it’s such a highly nutritious green veggie, I try to humor her with broccoli several times a week.
The only problem is that Mommy and Daddy get bored with alternating steamed and roasted broccoli.
Last night, as I stared down a crown of broccoli in my fridge, I wracked my brain for a simple way to prepare it. A way that wouldn’t take long and . . . well, heck, wouldn’t take any cooking!
Easy Broccoli Salad is what I came up with . . . and what I’m calling it. Yeah, I could give it a fancier, more unique name but I’m pregnant and tired.
(it’s a legitimate excuse, believe me)
The child LOVED IT. Ate seconds. And then ate the salad again for lunch today.
Can I get a woot?
(plus for my “Little” Lady, this salad has healthy oils/fats in it…. something her pediatrician wants us to push with our petite one.)
