Shredded Broccoli Stem Salad With Fresh Cucumber Dressing

Did you know the broccoli stalk or stem is just as nutritious as the crown?

Broccoli Stem Salad

1 Broccoli Stalk (approx.114g) Contains:
– 456 IU of vitamin A (for good vision and a healthy immune system)
– 81.0 mcg of folate (necessary for proper brain functioning, helps with depression)
– 28.5 mg of magnesium (required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body)
– 54.7mg of calcium (strengthens bones and teeth, wards off PMS)

* When broccoli stems are shredded and added to a salad like this, it almost reminds me of coleslaw!
