APRICOT BROCCOLI SALAD

October 14, 2014

There’s lots of clever recipes with ways to sneak vegetables into children’s meals. I sort of feel like I do a grown up version of this on myself. I’m not really sneaking anything by… me, but I like eating vegetables with combinations of lots of flavors. This makes the vegetables feel like a base with a lot more going on on top it. If this isn’t making complete sense, this broccoli salad is a great example. Eating servings and servings of plain or lightly seasoned broccoli isn’t usually my idea of a good time.

Dress the broccoli up with a tasty dressing and lots of cool tastes and textures? I’m absolutely on board.
