Joan’s Broccoli Madness Salad (and a Giveaway!)

Thank you to Sweet Tomatoes for providing the recipe for Joan’s Broccoli Madness
and for sponsoring this giveaway!

I love Arizona.

The beautiful mountains. The amazing wildlife. The near constant sunshine. The wonderful temps of the Spring, Winter, and Fall. But the Summer? It gets hot! I’m talking triple digits hot. Bake-cookies-in-you-car hot. Surface-of-the-sun hot! (OK, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but you get my drift)

So when the temps outside start to soar, naturally I want the temps of everything else to cool down. Even the temperature of my food. Nothing tastes better on a sweltering day than a cold drink and a cool salad.

Cue Joan’s Broccoli Madness Salad. This sweet and tangy salad is a customer favorite for patrons of Sweet Tomatoes/Souplantation restaurants, and for good reason. Light, refreshing, and flavorful, this salad is a perfect way to fill up your belly and while still keeping it cool on a hot summer day.
