Another Win-Win Recipe- Creamy Feta Cheese with Broccoli Salad
Can’t stand eating another piece of lettuce with balsamic vinaigrette? Switch to a salad with cheese.
Americans love cheese. And we encourage everyone to eat what they love while giving their body what it needs. That’s why we call it a win-win!
Why substitute one of your salads with this one? Here’s why:
Broccoli is bursting with great stuff. It’s a good source of Protein, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Selenium. It’s a great source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese.
Chickpeas add more Protein, Dietary Fiber, Vitamin B6 and Folate.
PLUS both are very low in saturated fat and cholesterol!
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
