“This hearty side makes a nice change-of-pace salad. It’s crunchy, creamy and simply delicious. You’d never guess it’s light!” says Dana Herbert of Goshen, Utah. HEALTHY OUTLOOK Got broccoli? If not, you should. The healthy green is an excellent source of vitamins A and C and a good source of calcium, riboflavin and iron, so eating it often definitely does a body good!

"I love this salad and have made it several times. I steam my broccoli just a little as I'm not that fond of raw broccoli."
