Broccoli & Grape salad

Broccoli salad

I have to confess that Broccoli is not my favorite vegetable. But I know eating cruciferous vegetables is very good for our health so I try to load up on my green intake daily. This salad was very popular a few weeks ago when we had a braai with friends.  The inspiration came together from a similar salad on Instagram that I saw but then I wanted to combine it with this awesome salad dressing from Katie Stewart Wellness. This is a delicious potato salad to add to your salad list, which my daughter also enjoys. (My son is not too crazy about Dill) I have made alot of her recipes because I am always working on my gut and skin.

I like the dressing because it is creamy but only has 1 tbs of mayonnaise in it. I also like the zing of the pickle juice.

Feel free to mix the fresh herbs into the salad dressing before adding it to the salad.

Just add all of the ingredients to a jar and shake. Keep the jar in the fridge and use on other salads during the week.I started using avocado oil for my dressings, it has a very neutral taste and is full of good fats.

If you are looking for another salad recipe try this Courgette and pesto salad. I need to reshoot this salad recipe, I made it so many times a few years ago, that I got a bit tired of it. But it is delicious!!

Remember to toast the almonds in the oven or a dry frying pan. It really helps to develop the flavour.

Adding pieces of fried bacon to the salad makes it extra delicious, but if left out the salad is also suitable for vegetarians.
