This salad has rapidly become my new favorite.
The sweetness from the balsamic, the creaminess from the avocado and the slight crunch from the broccoli makes it a winner in my book.
I recently got on a kick of pulverizing my broccoli for a week of munching.
I can add it to salads and "hide it" in a Marinara Sauce.
I think it will also add a nice texture to soups if it ever gets cold enough again for soup.
It is also great using a balsamic reduction.
A little goes a long way, but boy is it good!
