Do you ever look for new side dishes to go with dinner? I’ll bet you’ll enjoy this easy broccoli salad!
Yesterday was pretty warm here, and I just wasn’t in the mood to eat a lot of hot food. Know what I mean?
So I went on the hunt for a low-carb vege salad that I could make to go with our pork tenderloin.
I saw some pretty colorful salads, and decided I could just create my own….so off to the store I went!
How I Made This Easy Broccoli Salad
I already had some organic sweet peppers, organic sweet onion, and organic San Marzano tomatoes at home, so I chose to add some organic broccoli crowns and organic corn to the mix, creating a beautiful colorful salad.
For the dressing, I mixed 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, and 1/2 cup white wine vinegar. I added 2 teaspoons of sea salt, and 2 teaspoons of fresh ground pepper.
Knowing that wasn’t going to be quite enough flavor, I went outside and cut some fresh herbs….we grew an herb garden in a beautiful trough we’ve had a for a few years, and I had just the combination for dinner!
I picked some fresh basil, parsley, and dill, and chopped it all up. I added about 2 tablespoons of the fresh herb mixture to the vinegar/oil mixture, and then whisked it all together.
After pouring the dressing over the vegetable mix, I had created this gorgeous salad!
I was really happy with how this easy broccoli salad turned out! The vegetables were nice and crisp, and full of flavor! It was the perfect companion to our pork tenderloin!
