Broccoli Crunch Salad! May 22 2014, 1 Comment

This is one of my favorite side dishes because it goes with almost every meal. The only downside is that most broccoli crunch salads contain tons of high calorie ingredients like ramen noodles, bacon and too much mayo. So, after deciding on all the ingredients I wanted to use, I threw everything in a bowl, including the homemade mayonnaise and the results were incredible....great crunch, great taste, great everything! Instead of feeling bloated and tired after eating greasy hamburgers and chips this Memorial Day weekend, make these healthy turkey burgers and broccoli crunch salad! Your body will thank you!
