Summer is coming and with it are all the picnics, potlucks and other casual get-togethers.
When I attend one of these events, I always like to bring something I can eat which also packs flavor and nutrition into each bite.
Crockpot Bean Mix is a standby dish when we are going somewhere with electricity to keep it warm. But, there are times when you aren’t near a power supply which means salads.
I also want to make sure that sitting on a table for an hour or so will not have the food become unsafe to eat. So, bye-bye mayo-laden salads!
This lightly dressed, chilled broccoli salad is great for your upcoming gatherings.
The mayonnaise-free dressing adds a boost of bright flavor thanks to the fresh lemon juice and zest. Balancing this is a satisfyling crunch from the crisp-tender broccoli and pumpkin seeds.
If you have the time, make this recipe the night before. The extra time will allow the flavors to blend more thoroughly.
