Chopped Broccoli Salad with Parsley Dressing


Disclaimer:  I was given a free copy of Heather's Grain Free Family Favorites Cookbook in exchange for an honest review.  It is written by popular blogger Heather Resler of Cook It Up Paleo, 
 
The recipe we tried was Chopped Broccoli Salad with Parsley Dressing.

 
How pretty is this salad?!  ;-) 
 
First the Parsley Dressing was prepared.  It suggests oregano, but mine died during our crazy winter so fresh marjoram was used as a substitute.  Also, I put garlic in EVERYTHING, so it was added, too, even though it's not listed as an ingredient.  After mixing, it seemed a bit 'tame' for us.  Handsome Husband prefers bold flavors.  After a couple of hours in the fridge, the dressing was GREAT.  Let it hang out just a bit before using.
 
The Chopped Broccoli Salad was prepped quickly.  Since we are harvesting lots of goodies from our garden right now, yellow squash and a bell pepper were tossed in with the rest of ingredients.  I think there are all kinds of fresh vegetables that could come and go in this salad and still be tasty.
 
This was a lovely summer harvest treat!  'Definitely making this recipe again!
 
I hope you'll come back Thursday for another recipe review AND a giveaway!
