Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad makes a great side or snack!

*I have read a lot about the benefits of cinnamon in various places, and it is proving to be a strong anti-cancer agent as well:  "Cinnamon can reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells".  To read more of the awesome health benefits of cinnamon, check this out:

Amy's Broccoli Salad Recipe (2-3 servings):
1 Large bunch of broccoli, washed and chopped
2 Tbsp Ranch dressing (make sure to use "all natural" Ranch or you will end up with MSG, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) and other undesirable things in your dressing!)
2 Tbsp roasted and salted sunflower seeds
Red Onion sliced thinly

You can also add in cherry tomatoes and grated carrots for more colors, flavors and crunch!  And if you add some chick peas to it, you can make it into a meal!
