Fantastic Summer Salad

Fantastic Summer Salad

If you ever have a need to take something to a covered dish, this is the “go to” recipe that will get you raves and raves. It can be categorized as a side or a salad – however you want to look at it. It’s perfect! You get your green vegetables, your roughage, and even some sweet and salty stuff going on – all at the same time!

And best part of all?  It’s not really cooking! Just throwing a bunch of things together in a big bowl. I would suggest refrigerating the night before so the cole slaw dressing can soak into the broccoli. Other than that, it’s a snap to throw together. If you’re in a big rush, you can use jar cole slaw dressing, although look for my version in a future post. It is quite easy and quite delicious!

Again, fresh is always better!

Bon appétit!
