Thai Peanut Broccoli and Chickpea Salad

Broccoli is great in raw salads during the Summer.  It provides fiber, lots of nutrients and a satisfying crunch!  People love to dress it with mayonnaise and vinaigrettes, but I love to serve it with nut butter based dressing. The recipe I am sharing with you today combines broccoli as well as other colorful veggies with some chickpeas for added protein and an easy to make Thai peanut dressing.  This comes together in 15 minutes, and is great for picnics and parties!  Not a peanut fan?  Almond butter works here too. Allergic to nuts?  Use sunflower seed butter.
