This is one incredible broccoli salad recipe that I just love. The cranberries and water chesnuts give great texture and flavor and with bits of bacon really makes it a hit. The honey pear vinaigrette dressing is so delicious and pulls the salad together. I have made this salad several times for picnics and parties and someone is always asking for the recipe.

This is a recipe that was in Earth & Vine Provisions product magazine that they send out when you place an order. They have lots of yummy products and recipes.
