Welcome Spring with a Fresh, Colorful Broccoli Salad
Spring into healthful eating this season with the vibrant veggies in this colorful dish. Broccoli – a cruciferous vegetable – is rich in fiber and folate and is linked to a decreased risk of several types of cancer. In addition, research shows that garlic – a member of the allium family – probably protects against colorectal cancer. Share this salad with family and friends at your next picnic or potluck and pass along good health.
