Broccoli Salad

Michigan-grown broccoli is available July-October. Broccoli has many health benefits. It provides vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber. It also helps to reduce cholesterol. At only 45 calories per one cup serving, broccoli provides a tasty addition to your meals and snacks. Serve it raw with a low-fat dip, add it to green salads for an extra crunch, or use it to add color and texture to a stir-fry. Choose odorless broccoli heads with tight, bluish-green florets. Remove the outside skin on the stem with a peeler. Cut the stems and serve with the florets. Refrigerate broccoli and use within three to five days.
