Salad are so easy and one of my favorite side dishes especially in the Summer. Did I mention how the heath benefits of eating fresh veggies! Salad also can be prepared in advance. I love to make food ahead so I can have a relaxing dinner with family and friends. This Broccoli Slaw is easy to make and filled with flavor. Lately I’ve been using fresh mint and I love the taste and smell. Years ago when I was a beginning gardener I planted mint, just one plant in my garden. I didn’t understand how invasive mint is when left alone. Each spring I weed out most of the mint just leaving enough for my cooking needs. Substitute mint for cilantro or parsley for added flavor.
You can make ahead and refrigerate for up to three days.
