In honor of Brandi’s visit this week, I’m posting her favorite salad. We served it when she was here. This is a great salad for your health. It’s high in cruciferous vegetables which have anti-cancer properties.
2 cups chopped broccoli (organic, if possible)
2 cups chopped cauliflower (organic, if possible)
2 cups chopped celery (organic, if possible)
1/4 cup chopped carrots (organic, if possible)
1/4 cup chopped onion – green, red, white or yellow (organic, if possible)
optional, but a great Good for You-Naturally!™ addition – raw chopped pecans or walnuts – large handful
Toss all together.
Add dressing and mix well.
1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise
1/2 cup homemade ranch
extra pinch of garlic powder
(You could probably use 1 cup ranch only. It would be a little more “seasoned” than the mix above.)
Substitute 1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas (uncooked) for the celery and carrots (but then it wouldn’t be Brandi’s Salad) 🙂
