a recipe for you.

A few days ago I searched high and low for a recipe for broccoli salad. The result: you don't need a recipe, as long as you have a good dressing! Just combine some of your (or your kids') favorite things, or you can keep it simple with just broccoli and crumbled bacon. Yum! On Valentine's day I used a head of broccoli (finely chopped), some shredded cheddar, a diced apple, and blue cheese crumbles and served it alongside heart-shaped sloppy joe's. The day before that I had bacon instead of blue cheese, which was equally as good! Like I said before, anything goes! You could also add raisins, green peas, sunflower seeds, almond slivers... be creative!

Here's the recipe I came up with for some super yummy dressing:
1/2c. mayonaise
1/2c. plain yogurt
2 Tbs balsamic vinegar 
3 Tbs honey

Just mix all ingredients together, dump into your bowl of salad, and enjoy! 



  1. It's funny, considering how much my kids LOVE broccoli that this is the first time I've made it!

  2. my kids go crazy over broccoli too, we will need to try this one! thanks :)
