Easy Broccoli Salad

Hey guys!

 

In case you didn’t know…it’s SPRING!

 

As much as I get sick of long Minnesota winters, I’m quite thankful for them. Otherwise, I don’t think I would appreciate the shining sun and warmer weather come spring time.

 

When this season rolls around, my body shifts to craving more fresh salads, rather than wanting hot foods all the time.  Who else is with me?!  There’s really nothing better than fresh veggies on a beautiful spring day.

 

I actually created this broccoli salad for my family on Easter, and it has a hit!  That’s kind of a big deal.  You should probably try it, too.

 

 

This recipe is EXCELLENT for any spring gatherings you have coming up.  And it gets bonus points because its high in lots of nutrients, including vitamin C and fiber.
