BROCCOLI S A L A D

Shared from Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center

We chose this recipe because broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable. Research shows that ≥3 servings of cruciferous vegetables/week may reduce prostate cancer risk by nearly 50%. In addition, cruciferous vegetables are high in fiber, and also offer Vitamin C, beta carotene, calcium, iron, and folic acid.
