Broccoli Salad with Avocado Citrus Dressing

Standard

Raw veggies are hard for some people to eat, so why not toss them with a yummy dressing rich in omega 3 fats! Broccoli is a very sturdy veggie, which can hold fresh in the fridge for a few days, even mixed with the dressing. A great prep for fast veggie portions!

Servings: 4-5

Ingredients:

  • Broccoli Florets — We use the bag of Fresh Green Giant Broccoli Florets
  • 2 mandarin oranges (Cuties, Halos, Etc.)
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • sliced almonds
  • optional: 1 1/2 cups of broccoli slaw (Green Giant)

Dressing:

  • 1 medium avocado
  • Juice of 2 mandarin oranges
  • 2 tbs walnut oil
  • 2 tbs rice vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • stevia drops to taste (its best to add a little then taste)

Directions:

In a blender, add all dressing ingredients and blend. Then toss salad ingredients with dressing. Ready to eat! Store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.

Here we used it as a side to our Baked Drumsticks! A great goal is to try to fill half you plate full of green veggies.
