A delicious way to get anyone to eat their broccoli!

Broccoli has never been a vegetable my family cared much for.

You can bet that whenever I would put out a platter of fresh veggies with their favorite dip, broccoli would always be the only remaining veggie left.

I would try to roast it, put it in casseroles, and even their favorite Italian Pasta Salad, and they still wouldn't eat it.

Since I've never been a big fan either, I never forced the issue. But then one day a friend of mine at work brought a dish to pass for our company potluck.

It was filled with the green stuff and as I skipped over it, another friend told me I just HAD to try it. So I placed a spoonful of it on my plate just to be nice.

Truth? It was the most delicious salad I've ever eaten! Ever since it's been my go-to whenever I want to get all the health benefits of broccoli but with just a wee bit more flavor!
