Broccoli Salad

Η συνταγή και στα ελληνικά στο τέλος της ανάρτησης!

I was knocking my head about what to write in this post. I am sure most of you have heard about what is going on here. It is one of those times you don’t feel like cooking or making anything, because circumstances have vested a dark shadow all over you and you just don’t have the stamina to do whatever you were supposed to do.

Broccoli Salad
It is sad for me to see my country dragged and slandered like this, but on the other hand I feel like much of this is our doing. I could write pages and pages to explain to you whatever has happened to this beautiful country, but I am afraid this will only tire you. I just want to say that from this entire situation people who worked hard and honestly all the previous years will too pay an expensive price; people who paid their taxes down to a penny and were lawful citizens will suffer from the consequences of what is going on. Is it fair? No, it isn’t, but that’s how democracy works and this is something one must keep in mind.

Broccoli Salad
With all these in mind and since I had absolutely no will of making anything this past weekend, I decided to revamp a classic broccoli salad. I wanted something lighter regarding calories and with flavors that have the Greek aroma. I also decided to add strawberries since I love them in salads. This is a perfect light meal for anyone and if you add some chicken or ham, it is right on its own. You can make the sauce one day before and mix it with the vegetables the same day a couple of hours before serving it. Very refreshing, tasty and with less calories than the usual one.
