Broccoli to go in the veggie salad

Chopped Veggie Salad

Last updated: October 2022

This is my new favorite salad. It includes fresh veggies with a low-calorie, light-fat dressing. There's no lettuce in this recipe. Don't get me wrong; I love lettuce. Sometimes I just want something different.

You can choose to marinate the vegetables in the refrigerator before serving if desired. If marinating overnight, hold the tomatoes and add just before serving, as the tomatoes can get mushy. If you want to add even a bit more flavor, sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese on this salad before enjoying it!
