Dinner Lunch Recipes

Broccoli Salad

As a busy mom of 6 kiddos with a blended family, my goal is to find healthy, but easy recipes that we can enjoy and still fuel our bodies! My mission is to take what we love and find those healthy replacements! I am all for the guilt-free meals and treats!

One of my favorite side dishes is good ol’ broccoli salad. It’s a perfect dish that gives you your veggies that sometimes we forget to eat! I have tried many different recipes, but I decided in order to keep it “healthy,” I need to create my own recipe!

Hope you guys enjoy and would love your feedback if you give it a shot!
