Garlicky Broccoli and Prosciutto Salad
This colorful, crunchy, bold salad is adapted from a recipe by cookbook author Melissa Clark. As the raw broccoli “cures” under a shower of hot, garlicky oil, it becomes bright green and softens just enough. The addition of prosciutto, roasted red peppers and onions helps make this a light, Whole30-approved meal all on its own. The salad should sit for one hour before serving, though it can also be made two days ahead and refrigerated.
