When I go to summer bbqs or family gatherings, I'm all about enjoying the memories and focusing less on if the food is "healthy" or not. However, I do love bringing something light and refreshing so that I know I have a healthy option available. If you're also looking for an easy recipe to bring to all your summer events, this broccoli salad is a perfect option. Don't get me wrong- burgers and creamy potato salad are a must, but a light broccoli salad is also a great pairing to those heavier foods. A big plus- it's made out just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have at home!

    Is this recipe supposed to include 2 cloves of minced garlic? I saw it in the ingredients list but not in the assembly instructions.
