This fresh broccoli salad could not be easier. It goes together in a few minutes and is a real crowd pleaser! 🙂
All you need is:
fresh broccoli florets (organic if possible)
T. Marzetti’s Slaw Dressing
1/4 red onion, diced
1 snack size package of raisins
1 cup grated cheddar cheese*
Wash and cut the broccoli florets off the stalk. Cut the big pieces into bite sized pieces. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix it all up. *The pic above doesn’t show the cheese because I omitted it for a dairy free version.
Chill well. Stir it around before serving to coat the broccoli with the dressing. If you like, you can stir in chopped walnuts or pecans or sunflower seeds.

Egg Salad Recipe
Egg salad is super easy and a great high protein, low carb dish for when you are cutting carbs. Of course, egg salad sandwiches make a great, easy lunch or party snack.
To make this egg salad recipe, you will need:
3 tablespoons mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Place the eggs in a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once the water starts to boil, lower the heat to simmer, place a lid on the pot and simmer for 20 minutes.
Drain the eggs and add cold water to the pan. Let the eggs cool down for a few minutes then crack the egg shells and place them back into the cool water and refrigerate for an hour.
Peel the eggshells off the eggs and rinse well. Dice the eggs and place in a mixing bowl. Add the remainder of the ingredients and stir until the dressing is over all the eggs.
Chill until ready to serve.

Add remaining ingredients and toss to mix and coat. Serve cutlets with salad mixture. Serve with lemon wedges.
