Fresh Broccoli Salad is a popular salad with all types of variations. Here is ours.

Some versions of this salad contain a dressing with a huge amount of fat (often from mayonnaise) and sugar. This is a much lighter and healthier version.

This made Bekah is believer in enjoying raw broccoli.

Jeanne makes Zack a low protein version of this without the bacon.
