Broccoli Rabe Salad With Romaine and Creamy Garlic Paleo Dressing

We love this Broccoli rabe salad. Broccoli rabe is one of those veggies you can enjoy raw or cooked! It is so good in this salad. The creamy garlic paleo dressing is rich and nutritious, adding a finishing touch that tastes so indulgent (you may want to double the dressing recipe, just sayin’).

This salad goes great with our Rosemary Lemon Chicken Skillet .

If you make this Fully Functional® dish, and love it, save it with your favorite anti-inflammatory diet recipes!
