Every summer I enjoy finding a new favorite salad recipe. And this summer my son Jacob gets the prize for the best salad of summer! Here is Jacob’s version of broccoli salad, packed full of healthy ingredients AND it’s so yummy. Sometimes we even have a bowl for dessert or a late evening snack. Ready for some delicious nutrition? Here we go…
3 heads broccoli (or as much as you can get, Jacob says), chopped, including tender stems
1/2 cup almond butter
1 cup olive oil
2 cups raisins
1 cup chopped pecans
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients in a big salad bowl. It’s ready to eat, or you can refrigerate it and eat it all week. Enjoy!
Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Daniel 1:12 (NKJV)
p.s. My son Jacob is about to serve a one-year mission with Campus Crusade for Christ, planting CRU groups at colleges around Europe. If you would like to learn more about his mission, please contact me.
