How many get togethers will you go to this summer and bring the same old side dish? Boring green salad, jello, and baked beans are always on my list. However, I always WANT to bring the show stopper. Well, I just found it! My sister in-law sent me this recipe and honestly, I have made it 3 times this month! It is so refreshing and filling as well. I will admit, women seem to be drawn to it a little more than men, but even my husband tried it and liked it! Feel free to add some grilled chicken to make this a main dish rather than a side.
Broccoli Summer Salad
1 large broccoli crown
4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
7 ounces chick peas or garbanzo beans
20 cherry tomatoes
¼ head purple cabbage
5-8 ounces creamy balsamic dressing (I used Brianna’s)
Dice all ingredients into smaller than bite-size pieces, and combine in a large bowl. Toss together and chill. Prior to serving, add avocado and add desired amount of dressing.
