Veggies can get so dull – so how about we kick it up a notch and add a little umph to those lovely greens?
Don’t you feel like salads can go to one side or the other of the food spctrum. They are either rabbit food that makes you starve or there’s like a fruit salad – solid sugar calories. Like it’s a real art to make a good one, especially a side salad.
Thus – the broccoli salad was born. If you are still on the broccoli train and scared of it, maybe this will change your mind. It’s crunchy, yummy, and that fiber is oh-so-satisfying. Plus – you feel like a giant when you eat all the baby trees (OK or maybe that’s just me).
Makes 6 side servings
- 4 heads of broccoli (or 2 of those precut little baggies).
- 1/2 cup paleo mayo
- 1 onion
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 1/2 TSP sugar (optional)
Chop the broccoli florets into bite-sized deliciousness (save the stalks for a fabulous breakfast veggie!). Chop the onion even tinier. Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir. Keeps for a week in the fridge!
