Broccoli salad is one of my favorite salads that doesn’t have pasta or potatoes in it. I like that it’s sweet & zesty at the same time & is on the healthier side. Plus it’s a gluten free dish! This dish is lightened up quite a bit. It has just enough dressing to give it a nice flavor without being overly creamy & fattening.
