Broccoli Crunch Salad with a Parmesan Twist

Mary Kay Nugent


Light, crisp, savory and sweet are the words that come to mind when I describe this salad. Everybody wants to make it...there are so many versions and I decided to change mine up a bit with parmesan compliments the other flavors so can adjust the amount of dressing you make depending on how wet you like it....great for summer gatherings!
