Reviews for Broccoli Grape Salad
"This was very good.. I always blanche the broccoli for about 2-4 min, then into ice water, before adding to a salad. It just softens it a bit and makes it easier to eat."
"I must say, at first I was a little apprehensive to combine grape and broccoli- I didn't think they would be a good match. I was pleasantly surprised by the combination. The grape provided sweetness and a little excitement to the dish and the broccoli added some great texture and substance. One tip- make sure to preserve the stems on the broccoli. While most people cut them off- I find they are the best part!!"
"Everybody LOVED this!"
