Broccoli and Cauliflower Summer Salad. Such a good way to get those good cruciferous veggies in and keep barbecues healthy!
Summer is a time for lots of parties and barbecues. Now they sometimes get a bad rep but the fact is that keeping them healthy is totally doable! Cruciferous veggies have so many wonderful health benefits and adding them to the menu can really help with swimsuit season (we wrote a little more about some possible benefits here!).
This salad is very quick and light. The grapes add a refreshing twist to help the salad stand out from the rest. We look forward every year to making and devouring it!
1 bunch broccoli
1 head cauliflower
8 oz. cooked bacon
½ red onion
2 cups red grapes (halved if large)
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ – ¾ cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs. sugar
Cut vegetables and grapes, if needed, into bite size pieces, dice onion and crumple bacon. Place in a large bowl. Combine mayonnaise and sugar in separate bowl mixing well. Stir mayonnaise mixture into veggies until mixed well.
How do you keep your barbecues and picnics healthy?
