Broccoli and Bean Salad with Mint
I love a good salad. And one that is portable is even better especially during the summer months. This one is really delish, really easy, and will jar up perfectly and can stay in the fridge for up to 3 days just as is, and still be fresh and minty when you come to eat it. No need to get food while you are out, pack the esky, you are off and about kids!! Happy Summer holidays!
