Super Simple Broccoli-Tomato Salad

Super-Simple Broccoli-Tomato Salad

Sometimes you just need something simple, healthy, and fast, without all the chefy froo-froo. THIS, is one of those dishes. Crunchy and bright, sweet and tangy, this uber-easy salad is short on prep-time and big on flavor.

SO refreshing after a long, hot day!

TIP: Want to make it a meal? Grab a rotisserie chicken, allow to cool, and toss equal parts chopped thigh meat and breast into your salad (increase the amount of dressing by 1/3, if you do this).
