I know broccoli is good for me, most of us do. Packed with all those great phytonutrients (love that word!), broccoli is one of those cruciferous vegetables nutritionists are always telling us to eat.
Still, just try getting a kid to eat a stalk of steamed broccoli.
Probably not going to happen, but turn it into a tasty broccoli salad, and you’ll be surprised!
Crunchy veggies and walnuts tossed with a sweet sauce make this a healthy salad that will get your kids to eat their broccoli now for sure!
Happy, healthy cooking!

What’s good for me in this dish?
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable, and a powerhouse of nutrition. Vitamins C, K, A, folate, fiber, manganese, tryptophan and potassium help the body fight bladder, ovarian and prostate cancer. Broccoli is good for detoxification and stomach health; as well as cardiac and vision health. Wow!
