Hello my awesome foodie fam! Long time no talk huh?

Sorry I have been absent as of late but, for those of you that might not know, the issues that I am dealing with due to having Covid last year have been a bit overwhelming. It has made it not only hard to work/post, but hard to deal with day to day life as well.

From my sense of taste that just seems to come and go as it pleases which makes me rely on the opinions of others (which as a major control freak can be hard), to the muscle and joint pain that makes it hard to just sit in my office chair for more than a few minutes, brain fog that leaves me wondering what I am doing most of the time, and fatigue that has me wanting to stay in bed most days, it has been a rough time for your girl!

But please know that I am thinking about you all, and tasty recipes that I want to make for you when I can.

This recipe is one that I had been working on well before summer was even a blip on the horizon. I was so excited to come up with another great side dish that would work for your family BBQs and cookouts, picnics, or just a nice salad for a hot summer day dinner.

I wish I had gotten it out to you before now but it is so good that I knew I had to post it even if it is really time for me to be posting back to school dinner ideas, or holiday recipes.

This salad has become my go-to salad to have on hand for the nights that hubs feels like grilling, or just some pan seared chicken is on the menu.

I may or may not have been eating this as a meal on it's own too!

Yup, it is THAT good!

FAQS ABOUT


Can I make this right before I need to serve it? Yes you can, however I really do recommend you make it at least a couple hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to really meld.

Can I make this with cauliflower instead? Yes, you could do all cauliflower, or a mix of cauliflower and broccoli.

How long will this Loaded Broccoli Salad last in the refrigerator? It is best eaten within a couple of days as the veggies will start to break down after that.

Last thoughts about Loaded Broccoli Salad


Up until now my hands down favorite side "salad" has been my Deviled Egg cauliflower Salad. It is so good keto and non-keto people request it over and over.

Which of course makes my little foodie heart ever so happy!

But Momma was craving something different. Something tangy, and crunchy, and full of flavor. Which is what led me down the path of coming up with this salad.

Now I can't get enough of it. 

I mean like I am walking on the edge of obsession here people!

I prefer it raw, but hubs likes his a little softer, so if you are like the hubmeister and don't dig your salad rabbit style, you can put your broccoli in a microwave safe bowl, with a little water, and cook it for 3 to 5 minutes depending on how soft you want your brocoli. Then just continue on with the recipe as written.

It is fabulous either way, just sayin'!
