Broccoli salad is a dish that has been around for centuries, though its exact origin is difficult to pinpoint. It was likely introduced in the United States during the late 1800s or early 1900s. Since then, it has grown to become a popular side dish and an integral part of summer BBQs.

The traditional version of this salad is made with raw broccoli, shredded carrots, bacon, red onion, and a creamy mayonnaise-based dressing. This type of salad was most popular in the 1950s and 1960s, but it has since evolved to include a variety of ingredients and dressings.

Today, you can find broccoli salads made with everything from apples and nuts to cranberries and cheese. There are also numerous vegan-friendly options that use plant-based dressings instead of mayonnaise. The versatility of this salad makes it a great addition to any picnic or potluck.

No matter what ingredients you choose, broccoli salad is sure to be a crowd pleaser. With its crunchy texture and bold flavors, this classic dish is perfect for adding a bit of extra flavor to your summer barbeque or gathering.

All yogurts are excellent sources of calcium, potassium, protein, zinc, and vitamins B6 and B12. What distinguishes Greek yogurt is its thicker, creamier texture because the liquid whey is strained out. Also, it contains probiotic cultures and is lower in lactose and has twice the protein content of regular yogurts.

Broccoli is a very good source of dietary fiber, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, choline, vitamin B1, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), potassium and copper. Broccoli is also a good source of vitamin B1, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, zinc, calcium, iron, niacin and selenium.
