I developed this salad for a St. Patrick's Day party. We all brought green foods. Someone actually brought green potato soup, but I think some of the other dishes were better received! We all laughed. This one is good and definitely healthy.

This green green salad is delicious! Filled with all kinds of green veggies, it has a satisfying crunch and a refreshing flavor. Raw broccoli bulks up the salad and gives structure. We loved the slightly smoky flavor of the bacon. The light ranch dressing helps pull all the flavors together. It's a healthier salad everyone will enjoy and a tasty way to eat your veggies.
