Broccoli Salad

Chop one head of broccoli into small pieces.
Chop tomatoes to make 1 cup.
Chop and seed one red (or yellow or orange) bell pepper.
Add one or two cans of sliced black olives.
Add one can of drained and rinsed Garbanzo beans.
Add your favorite vinaigrette, or toss in olive oil and vinegar.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serves six.

This salad is very rich in vitamin C and has iron and calcium.  Also, it makes a great side dish to a pasta entree. I like to use this for women's health issues and to prepare or recover from strenuous exercise.  

I suggest taking a heavy dose of Beano with this as well as letting it marinate for a while.  Broccoli takes a lot of chewing. :)
