Creamy Broccoli Salad

Summer time is upon us and I love a refreshing salad. Broccoli SaladIt’s also a great way to give your child vegetables in its natural state. We don’t put too much dressing on our salads, so it’s not entirely visible on the photo but it’s definitely delish. P.S. Just like his father, my toddler picked out the onions, but ate everything else.
