Lightened-Up Broccoli Salad
Prep Tip: Broccoli can be stored in an open bag in the refrigerator for up to five days. Rinse (don’t soak) broccoli under cool water just before using. Use the stem too, just cut off the browned end and slice.
Change it Up: Add chopped cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, grapes, or sliced radishes. Substitute walnuts for sunflower seeds or sliced almonds. Non-Dairy? Add a couple tablespoons of olive oil instead of yogurt and omit the cheese.
Nutrition Tip: In addition to being a good source of fiber and Vitamin C, Broccoli contains antioxidants. Antioxidants help keep the immune system, skin, and hair healthy.
