A creamy broccoli salad that’s perfect for parties, potlucks or any time of day, especially on warm summer days.
I am so excited for summer this year. I no longer have an infant that needs to be held/bounced/rocked all summer long. I have 3 very active young children who LOVE water and sunshine. I can turn the sprinkler on and the kids just have an absolute blast! So obviously I don’t prefer to be in the kitchen all day long, especially on gorgeous summer days (this is besides the fact that I couldn’t possibly spend all day in the kitchen even if I wanted to with a 1, 3 and 4 year old). This is why I make salads like this broccoli salad since it’s not only healthy, but it’s also quick to make!
I love to make all types of salads, especially in the summer. I make some variation of broccoli salad quite frequently in the summer with varying ingredients depending on what I have on hand. This time I decided to add feta cheese and cranberries to mix it up a bit.
With that said, I am honored to be guest posting today for a fellow registered dietitian, Kara, on her blog, Kara Lydon | The Foodie Dietitian.
