Best Ever Broccoli Salad
Broccoli salads are a tremedous food to prepare for the family. The one we have featured from The Slow Roasted Italian website is so beautifully photographed. A good salad needs a great dressing. If you don't have a great tasting dressing there will be less excitement over the salad itself. This recipes incorporates bacon, raisins and pine nuts! What a tasty combination. The dressing uses mayo and sourcream plus lemon juice and tasty seasoning.
What is it like in your home as far as the consumption of fresh veggies? Life veggies are so great for you. Veggies are loaded with vitamins and minerals. There is an old saying, You Are What You Eat. This carries some truth to it. You see lots of talk shows about the importance of eating live food. If the food is brightly colored and fresh, you are consuming enzymes that are live and life, gives life! I grew up in a household where live fresh food was and still is a part of the daily diet. We also grew many of our own veggies and to this day, although living in much smaller space, I still value the container planters where I grow the herbs, spinach, lettuce, chard and kale that I consume a little of each day as part of my diet. If you want to feel good, eating fresh salads are a step in the right direction.
There is a lot of talk about how to get your kids to eat vegetables. If they are exposed to fresh tasty veggies, cut up on a plate with some tasty creamy dip, most kids will like them. It is all about forming eating habits as you crave what you are being fed. If you children, or your adult family members are turning their noses up to veggies, perhaps, they were only exposed to canned or frozen vegetables which offer no comparison.
For those that already love salads, you will enjoy this one. For those that are trying to get their families to eat salads, this has a good combination of flavors.
