Healthy Broccoli Salad - The Fit Peach

I’m a sucker for all things salad - chicken thigh salad, watermelon salad, or even quinoa salad. Throwing all my favorite foods in one big bowl and calling it a salad is basically my hobby. It’s been a mission of mine to slash the rumors out there that salads are boring, not filling, and only contain rabbit food. I don’t know who started that fake news but it could not be more wrong. Salads can be nutrient dense, very satisfying, and absolutely delicious! You just need to know how to prepare the right one for you.

Healthy Paleo Broccoli Salad - The Fit Peach

This broccoli salad is packed with fresh, crunchy vegetables, some chopped dates for a touch of natural sweetness, and mixed with an avocado oil based mayo* for a little creaminess. It makes one heck of a snack, a great side dish, or throw on a protein of choice (I’d go for chicken) and make it a meal! I can assure you, this recipe is one the whole family will love 😊.

*I’m practically in love with the Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo. It makes my life so much easier. Nowadays, it can be found at most local grocery stores. I have yet to master the homemade avocado oil mayo but I’m working on it - stay tuned. For now, this stuff is basically gold.
