Broccoli Crunch Salad

Every summer we are all faced with the same question – you are heading to a friend or families house for a BBQ and ask if you should bring something.  They almost always say no, just bring yourself!  But you know better, and I am here to help.

This broccoli crunch salad if filled with good-for-you ingredients, tastes amazing and keeps well in the fridge.  I wouldn’t recommend this if it’s going to sit in the sun however, so in that case, refer to my other side dish recipes!  (If I need something that has to sit out, I generally opt for an orzo pasta salad – you can find one here)

I love this because it has a little bit of tang from the greek yogurt, sweetness from the cranberries and so much crunch from everything else.  It’s a bowl of wonders with simple ingredients.

I also make this occasionally to bring as a snack to work too.  It’s a great way to get a little more fiber, energy and protein during what is usually known as the “afternoon slump”.

I hope you enjoy!
