Yum! I love me some broccoli. Do you? I like it steamed, in salads, or roasted in olive oil and sea salt. This Fresh Broccoli Salad Recipe is SO delicious. With All the flavors from the red onion, crisp bacon and the sweet dressing, it is a great addition to any meal.
Oh, and did I mention the dressing is made from scratch? Yum!

Mix these 3 ingredients together in a small bowl.
My Fresh Broccoli Salad Recipe has simple ingredients and crisp flavors.
Once all of your fresh veggies, nuts, berries and bacon are well mixed together…
Gently fold in the sweet mayonnaise dressing.

As I’m going through the broccoli chalenge recipes I’m thinking they all sound wonderful and should have planted some in the garden.
