Crunchy Broccoli Salad is my favorite way to eat broccoli. Crunchy and light, it is a delicious way to get more green in your diet.
This salad is a combination of broccoli, green onions, bacon, ramen noodles, butter and chopped pecans. So lots of crunch! And tt is all coated with a nice light dressing.
It’s a fresh and delicious side dish for any meal but is just the perfect shade of green for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration. I love all the texture that is in this dish, the crisp broccoli and bacon and the crunch of the nuts and ramen noodles.
