Nutrition Tip: Broccoli is an excellent source of Vitamin C, making 1 cup of broccoli florets and 1 orange about the same.

To make this lunchbox SUPER simple, we pair this make-ahead broccoli salad with a favorite sandwich – quick and easy! Do you kids love PB&J? Perfect! Or turkey and cheddar, ham and Swiss, hummus and veggies? All good here.

Or pair with a wrap, leftovers from last night or any other main dish your kids enjoy. That’s what I love about this recipe – I can make a big batch at the beginning of the week and pair it with just about anything for easy lunches.
