Crunchy Broccoli, Raisins, and Walnut Salad

Hello friends! Crunchy broccoli, raisins and walnut salad is one refreshing and colorful salad you'll want to put on your list of salads this summer.  This is the salad you'll want to make over and over again because it's loaded with fresh vegetables as it offers a superb flavor and a nice crunch with every bite.

I decided to revive this salad from our archives again since it's become our all time favorite. This salad is simply tossed with fresh chopped broccoli, fresh chopped cabbage, raisins, dried cranberries and walnuts with a sweet, Dijon vinaigrette. Then topped with crispy bacon just before it's served.  It was so amazing, we all couldn't stop eating it.

Fresh Watermelon Lemonade

The weather has been gorgeous in the South all week, and all I can think about
is making something refreshing to drink.  Watermelon lemonade is a non-alcoholic, all natural thirst-quenching drink without any chemicals or fillers.  It's has no sugars added, and it contains a healthy splash of vitamins C, A and B6.  Perfect!

Best of all, this watermelon lemonade takes a few minutes to make and serve.  And for me, every time I drink a glass, it leaves me feeling clean and energized.  I love that part!
