Butter Beans broccoli Salad with almond dressing

Almond Butter Beans broccoli Salad

As a kid I hated broccoli. I was pushing these odd looking ‘’little trees’’ around on my plate and was happy my mum gave up one day. However, when I got older I realized broccoli can taste amazing if you know how to prepare it. A good dressing can make a world of a difference. I also learned about the amazing health benefits of broccoli and I became a fan. The knowledge and the great recipes I created for myself to make broccoli a star on my plate, resulted in me having broccoli almost on a daily basis. This butter beans broccoli salad with almond dressing is just one of many favorite broccoli salads.

There are many ways to enjoy broccoli. I enjoy it steamed, roasted, stir-fried, as a soup, in my juices or in a salad.

Keep it simple and only use a few ingredients. The almond butter dressing with the butter beans will make this salad crunchy and buttery at the same time. PLUS, it can be made in about 10 minutes, or however long it takes your pot of water to boil and steam those little green trees.
