Here is a quick recipe that is great to portion off in small containers for quick eating on the go or if you need a little afternoon snack. I know I am more likely to go for the good stuff over the bad if it is prepared before hand and readily available. The summer can be crazy dashing from play dates, working out, to the pool, cookouts and errands. Throw a container in your gym or travel bag! Enjoy and let me know how you like this recipe!
I was swimming at the pool this last week with a friend and she offered me some of this salad. Like any pregnant women how could I turn it down. After eating three bowls and feeling like I may have over did it I had to get this recipe to share with you all!
2 heads of fresh Broccoli
3 bell peppers- red and yellow
Green onions chopped up
1 bag of cranberries
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil and vinegar to taste
(You could add zucchini and cucumber in the processor from your garden if available)
I used my food processor to make the Broccoli into a slaw. Chop up onions and peppers fine (love my vidalia food wizard from bed bath and beyond). You can estimate the salt, pepper, almonds, sunflower seeds, olive oil and vinegar to your liking. Just go easy on the vinegar, mix up everything and then taste to see if it needs a little more flavor.
I naturally go easy on the salt due to being pregnant and having experienced hypertension my first pregnancy.
What is your favorite summer salad?
