Even though the Summer doesn’t technically start until June 21st I am already craving all those delicious foods that remind me of the warm summer nights dining on my patio. There is something so relaxing about eating something hot off the grill with a light crisp salad and a glass of wine that makes me wish summer was more of a year-round affair. So as you can imagine I didn’t waste any time when it came to incorporating my favorite summer dishes into my weekly meal planning. Since broccoli is a vegetable I can eat raw, sauteed, or even fried, yes, fried (don’t knock it until you try it) I knew this broccoli salad would be a dish I could eat every summer. This dish is the perfect accompaniment to the typical BBQ foods (burgers, hot dogs, ect..) but I like it with some grilled chicken and a baked sweet potato.
