Prepared by Go Figure Chef David, here’s a delicious and fairly simple way to add veggies and good fats to your meal.
2 cups broccoli florets (steamed lightly, should be bright green but tender. Plunge
into cold water after steaming.)
1 cup artichoke hearts (packed in water, not oil preferably. If oil-packed is
available only, rinse first.)
2 cups olives (a mix of green, black and kalamata is nice, or whatever you have.)
½ cup thinly sliced sweet onion
Put cold broccoli and all ingredients in a bowl and toss with balsamic dip (recipe on next page.) Serve and enjoy!
Extra add-ins to choose from:
Herbs: fresh chopped basil, fresh rosemary
Veggies: cauliflower (prepare like broccoli), tomato, mushroom, peppers
Protein: turkey pepperoni, small pieces of cooked sausage
