Broccoli Salad

Melissa Snow


This is a recipe that I got from a lady at a Tole Painting workshop. I love this salad because the dressing isn't sweet and it's easy to prepare.

How to Make Broccoli Salad


  1. Note: I do not do this, but you can blanch the broccoli beforehand if you prefer. I also usually eyeball the ingredients, so use as much or as little as you want of each ingredient.
  2. To prepare: blend all ingredients together in bowl. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
