Best Broccoli Salad Ever!
So, here is the Best Broccoli Salad Ever! Try it for yourself, share it with your friends, and see what you think. Or, have your friends each make their favorite broccoli salad and compare and share! Any way you do it, broccoli salad is a nutritious choice. If you are watching your fat intake, here’s a quick way to keep flavor and lower fat and calories. Wherever the recipe calls for fat, for example, in the mayonnaise or bacon, measure these scant. That means if one-half cup of bacon is called for in the recipe, measure the one-half cup so it barely reaches the measurement. If the mayonnaise calls for one cup, do the same thing. When you measure out the low fat and low calorie foods, measure large. So make the broccoli a heaping cup, and so on. This way, you get all the flavor, but you can lower the fats and calories in the dish substantially.
This dish is a lovely blend of two different kinds of greens, including peas. Peas sometimes don’t get a fair shake, and can be relegated to the obligatory servings at holiday time. But they offer plenty of nutritious punch and are well worth adding to any salad. When you buy them fresh, they are quick and easy to shell and toss in to any salad recipe. Peas contain healthy phenols that can work against stomach cancer if you eat them regularly. And why wouldn’t you? Peas are absolutely dirt cheap in season, if you want you can even grow them almost anywhere around your house (or against it, actually) and frozen they still offer nutritional impact. Combined with broccoli, this salad is a great action lunch or dinner side. Try it tonight, and make it a regular offering in your household.
