Broccoli Salad

Brocolli Salad, Procuitto Sticks, Salami Sticks 024Yep another salad.  This time it’s broccoli.  Not quite in season yet but of course it is available everywhere.  There are so many things you can do with broccoli.  Make soups, stews, salads, bread it, fry it, stir fry it, stem it, I like them all.  You just have to decide on which one you want to make.  In the summer I like it in salads.  Just wash it, chop it add dressing maybe even some fruit, cheese and your done.  Full of nutrients that are good for you.  Broccoli is a part of the cabbage family, no wonder I like it.  Best to buy it locally when in season. For you are getting a humungous size for about 99 cents.  This is the time to buy and freeze.
