A quick and easy Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad

I love a good broccoli salad. Whether raw or steamed, a tasty dressing makes a huge difference. Another favorite way to eat broccoli salad is adding colors.


So how do you add colors? You add colors by adding other vegetables and even fruits. Usually green in color, adding other colorful vegetables such as radishes and mini sweet pepper (yellow, red and orange) is an easy to create a beautiful salad. The mixture becomes almost like a beautiful flower arrangement.

In this recipe, the guava dressing pairs perfectly with all the ingredients. I prepared the dressing with Italian seasoning and garlic for more flavor. A light vinegar makes it all possible to binds all the spices and the guava preserve together.

The almonds add the extra crunchiness. The red onion adds a hint of peppery taste which I enjoy. It awakens the flavor of all the ingredients.

This salad is perfect for the summer months because it is very refreshing and will brighten up your dinner table. It is also a great barbecue and picnic salad. Serve is all year round as long as you can find broccoli in your supermarket.
