As a rule, my kids would rather have broccoli roasted than any other way. They usually aren’t big fans of eating it raw. This broccoli salad recipe was a big hit because it had other things in it they like such as raisins and sunflower seeds. Give it a try with your broccoli eaters and see what happens.
I bet they’ll like it more than you think. I have a saying that if you don’t like a healthy food its because you haven’t tried it the WAY you like it yet. Preparing foods in many different ways helps you discover the one that you absolutely LOVE! Variety is the spice of life!
