Broccoli Salad

I’m happy to share one of my favourite summertime vegetable side salads. If you are looking for another great salad recipe to try, you simply must try this Taco Salad, this garden-fresh pasta salad, or the amazing BLT Pasta Salad!

This Broccoli Craisin Salad recipe is another favourite of mine, that was given to me at a school potluck!

See the trend here? You can really get some great recipes when going to gatherings, it’s like a collection of everyones much-loved dishes. It’s how I got this Ramen Noodle Salad recipe!

I make Broccoli Craisin Salad year-round yet it’s especially nice right now during the summer months. Not only can you put it together very quickly, but during the summertime I crave meals that don’t require heating up the house.

You know, something that nourishes yet also cools you down?

Broccoli Craisin Salad is crunchy, and full of flavours thanks to the dressing, raisins, craisins and sunflower seeds. I add some coleslaw salad into mine as well, and it just completes it!

Unlike most salads, this one is almost better the day after – which is why it needs to be chilled for at least 2 hours before eating.

So, you can make this in the morning before you head out for some summer fun – and the vegetable side is ready and waiting for you! 

When this recipe is halved, it feeds our family of five for one meal. Make the entire portion for entertaining or to ensure you have leftovers.

Also, precise measurements isn’t required, so add more or less of the fillers – as desired.
