Immunity Boosting Broccoli Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of Smith's Farm broccoli about three crowns, chopped small
  • 2 cups organic red grapes halved
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese cubed or grated
  • 1/2 cup organic red onion chopped small
  • 1/2 cup Simple Truth fully cooked uncured bacon crumbled
  • 1/2 cup Simple Truth organic raw sunflower seeds toasted
  • 1/3 cup Simple Truth dried cranberries
  • 1 bottle Simple Truth Organic Lemon Poppyseed Greek yogurt dressing 
  • kosher salt & pepper taste 

Directions:

  1. Toast your sunflower seeds: add seeds to a skillet, they do not require oil. Over medium heat dry-roast them by shaking (or stirring) them back and forth for two to three minutes or until they've browned in color. Set aside.
  2. Add the chopped broccoli, grapes, cheese, red onion, bacon, sunflower seeds and cranberries to a large serving bowl.
  3. Pour dressing over broccoli combination and toss or stir well. 
  4. Season with kosher salt and pepper to your liking. I like to let it set for a good 20 minutes to absorb the dressing. It's even better the next day.
  5. Divide the salad into individual bowls and serve. Leftovers will keep well for 3 to 4 days in the fridge in an air tight container. Enjoy!
