"This is a go-to recipe for picnics and gatherings as it is so delicious and easy! Depending on what I have on hand, at times I will also add cherry tomatoes and/or diced red pepper for some extra color and/or craisins for a hint of sweetness. SO good!!"

"I made this salad last night for company. Initally I was concerned because the dressing seemed quite minimal compared to other broccoli salads I had eaten in the past. I used white balsamic vinegar that I had on hand. The dish was not slathered in mayonnaise yet the flavour was fantastic and. I was very pleased with the finished product! This is now in my KEEPER file. Love thiks recipe."
