Skinny Broccoli Salad
Enjoy this Skinny Broccoli Salad recipe and really bump up the nutrition that you and your kids and the rest of the family have at the dinner table tonight. Or make this salad recipe for lunch; it can be served pretty much any time that you feel like you want some great veggies to eat. This salad recipe blends a neat combination of salty olives, good cruciferous veggies as well as cheese and other yummy ingredients that you and your family will love. This salad recipe, because it includes cheese, can be filling enough on its own to make an entire lunch of it. Or, add a big hunk of bread if you want a bit more to eat. You could also serve this at dinner, too, just as a side, and make the servings a bit smaller because of all the cheese that forms part of this salad recipe.
This salad recipe recommends that you blend all of the ingredients including the salad dressing (which is a commercial blend) and then let it chill in the fridge. You could also consider, when you take this salad recipe blend out of the fridge, allowing it to sit for ten or perhaps as much as fifteen minutes before you serve it. That just allows the ingredients to warm up slightly and so offer more flavor when you eat them. This will allow the tomatoes, particularly, to get a bit warmer, which almost always improves their flavor. This salad recipe will also be very pretty, because of the red tomatoes and green broccoli as well as the bright color of the cheese that is added in to it.
This is an easy recipe to make, and one that you can just toss together and eat right away or let sit for some time in the fridge to allow the flavors to co-mingle just a bit better. Either way, this salad recipe will be just delicious. Few things taste quite as good as fresh veggies especially the way these ones are chosen and then seasoned. So everyone in the family will enjoy this great dish.
The veggies are also very nutritious, especially the cruciferous one, the broccoli. Broccoli is a great veggie to serve kids, who seem to really like eating it. And when you can get kids to eat anything that is remotely good for them, feed it to them as often as possible! Sometimes it can become quite frustrating trying to ensure that your kids eat at something that is good for them, rather than seeming to always want to choose the fun foods! Enjoy this salad soon. You will be pleased to serve this skinny broccoli salad to the kids.
