This flavorful salad is easy to mix in the morning and refrigerate until serving with dinner.
Bag mixes and a homemade dressing make this easy salad quick to make but fresh and tasty.
I try to pack my husband a lunch every day, but salads are always an issue. Either I have to pack salad dressing separately or he has to deal with soggy greens from the dressing sitting on them for too long. No more!
Broccoli Salad is a nice alternative to a side salad. It’s quick and easy when you use the bags of fresh broccoli florets available at the supermarket, but be sure to allow time for the salad to chill.
I made this salad for the first time today, making it up as I went along. A friend told me about making a dressing with oil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. We love garlic so I used over half of a bulb in my dressing, but feel free to adjust how many cloves you used based on your preference. By rinsing the lentils with cold water, it’s easy to prepare this salad a half hour before serving, but if you prefer it to be really cold you could make it several hours ahead and chill before serving. Not only is it healthy (although not low fat), it was delicious.
