  1. I love the broccoli stems idea. I never know what to do with those. Can't wait to try the dressing/dip too!

  2. I always eat the stems...throw them right in with the florettes when making my raw broccoli salad. I love the looks of your dip recipe, thank you sooo much. I need a dairy free dressing for my children and now we can all just eat the same one! I will thin it a bit for our salads and keep it as is for a dip.
    Peace and Raw Veggie Health,

  3. omg, broccoli stems are the best - you're right! My grandma would feed them to me when I was a little girl and ever since, I've been addicted... Soo good.
