I’ve mentioned before that I don’t spend a lot of time each week planning out our lunches. Instead, I plan dinners that are large enough to have leftovers for us to make lunch out of the next day. On Sundays, though, I do like to make a big batch of something to supplement those leftovers at lunch. Lately, this broccoli salad has been on rotation (I double the recipe).
I went the first roughly 25 years of my life not eating what are now three of my favorite foods: Bacon, Brussels sprouts and potatoes. What?! My mom would try everything to try to get me to eat potatoes, but it was a no-go. I was never a huge fan of bacon and I don’t think I even saw a Brussels sprout until college. I can’t imagine my life without them, now!
This salad recipe uses two of these foods: bacon and Brussels sprouts. And kale. If we’re being fair, I don’t think I had Kale until my late twenties, either.
