This is a very tasty side dish and would go well with most any main dish. Prepare a few hours ahead to make sure it is well chilled when served.

How to Make Broccoli Salad


  1. Mix together the first four ingredients, cover and refrigerate. Mix together the next three ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Combine all ingredients together in a serving bowl when about to serve, add sliced black olives, blending everything well.
  2. *** (Note:)I have made this when I had no cheese to add to it and it was still very good! So you could dispense with the shredded cheese if desired.
  3. Bon Apetit' Y'all!
