I love broccoli salad for holiday meals and so does my family! This one is a huge hit at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Not only is this side absolutely delicious, I also just can’t get enough of all the color these veggies bring to the table! This has to be one of the easiest salads to make, and to make your own! I lighten it up by using a low-fat ranch dressing, and I make sure not to add too much. I also use reduced-fat cheese, but this is optional. Add your family’s favorite veggies or toppings to make this recipe completely unique!
