This is it, the perfect summer salad. This greek yogurt broccoli salad is bursting with the ultimate combination of sweet and savory flavors for a dish that is delicious. It’s sweet, rich, nutty, tangy, and just oh so good! My wife Christina is going to tell you all about it.

Hi friends! Christina here, I have made this salad so many times you would think I would be sick of it, but I can assure you I’m not—it’s just that good! I’ve served it at family dinners, barbecues, potlucks, and holiday gatherings, and have even made it for healthy lunch meal preps.

For the best results, the salad should be stored separately from the salad dressing. The dressing can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. The salad can be stored in a separate airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Once the salad has been tossed with the dressing, it will stay fresh in the fridge for another day or two.

How to eat Salad when you hate it

The key to eating salad if you don’t like it or hate vegetables is to make it the way you like it. I don’t love leafy greens like lettuce in a salad. I get tired of eating leaves. So I make a lot of marinated salads like this and I love them! It was a big key in changing how we ate and adding more veggies to our diet without misery.
