Who knew going to the deli counter could be so much fun?
Over the past few weeks I’ve become friendly with the woman who works in my local grocery store’s deli section. It all started when she began offering me lots of samples to taste. For those of you who don’t know me, I LOVE food. And I always seem to be hungry when I’m there, so thanks to her I don’t slip into a full-blown low blood sugar cranky attack (something I’m prone to, unfortunately). She’ll say, “Oh Tara, you’ve GOT to try our chicken salad today; they just made it and it’s delicious!” When I bring along my 20-month-old daughter, she always gives her free slices of cheese–and pretty much anything she wants as long as she’s smiling and waving at her. 🙂
She recently turned me on to something I’d never actually choose, but it’s now a staple on my lunch menu: Broccoli Crunch Salad. I’m not exactly sure what’s in it, but it tastes like there’s shredded cabbage, yellow raisins, red onion, crumbled bacon (I think), along with some other good stuff. I really need to find out the recipe. Here’s a pic. Maybe you can help me figure out what’s in TODAY’S CRANKINESS CRUSHER so I can make it all of the time? And once I suss out what’s in it, I’d be happy to share the recipe if you’re interested.
I hope you’re all having a good day!
