This big-batch, veggie-rich salad holds up well for up to three days, so long as you store the dressing and salad separately. The zesty citrus-chipotle dressing enrobes loads of hearty crunch from fresh broccoli and yellow bell pepper, plus a bit of allium punch from red onion. If your onion seems especially pungent, you can soak the slices in cold water for a few minutes, then drain and pat dry before adding to the salad. We incorporate a little bit of light mayo into the dressing to give it more clinging power.
