I’ve been a fan of broccoli slaw for a long time.  This is a simple combination of ingredients that’s not only colorful, but really nutritious.  Broccoli slaw adds a crunchy texture and is high in vitamin C, potassium and folate.  Black beans add a nice dose of fiber and protein.  Paired with sweet mango and savory Litehouse home style ranch dressing, this salad is great for a picnic, brunch or shower.  Quinoa or bulgur could be added to make it a complete vegetarian meal.  #sponsored https://www.litehousefoods.com/ Litehouse dressings have a fresher taste and are “sold in the cold” (refrigerated section) with your favorite fruits & veggies.  Cause nobody wants warm salad…
