I get more compliments on this simple dish, than any I make for company suppers or potlucks
Didn't like it at all. My husband was excited for it while I was making it, but it failed!! Will not be making again.
I love the Broccoli braid, it is easy to make and since it is a complete meal you do not need a side dish
This is very good and not as difficult as it looks. I omit the green pepper and slivered almonds.
I made this recipe this past weekend, it was GREAT! My family loved it. I tweaked it a little but basically stuck to the recipe.
