Did You Know?

3. Cook the Beef

  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp. salad dressing over medium-high heat.
  • Add 3 c. broccoli. Cook and stir for 3 mins.​

From our Kitchen!

Low-sodium vinaigrette salad dressings are a great way to add flavor to beef, chicken or pork. You can also use as a marinade by placing the meat in a sealable bag, pouring the salad dressing on top, and letting it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Just be sure to choose a brand with less than 150-200mg sodium per serving!
