It’s spring time and that means there are so many great fresh fruits and vegetables becoming available. One is broccoli, a favorite of mine. This doesn’t take long to whip this up and can be made the day before so it’s great for a picnic (make sure you can keep it chilled because one of the ingredients is mayo).
