This is officially the only salad recipe you need for this summer! When I say I can eat low carb broccoli salad on repeat, I’m not kidding. 

The flavors combine together so well and the different textures are perfect together. 

And the star ingredient, is deinfitely the sweet vidalia onions! They’re in peak season right now and available at your local Sprouts Famers Market. 

Sweet Vidalia Onions are less pungent than your basic white onion. They have aromatic notes and a sweet, mild flavor which is just perfection. In addition to recipes like this, they are perfect for grilling and frying!

I love shopping for produce at Sprouts because because I know they’ll have the best prices on everything from my typical fruit and veggie staples to seasonal specialties.
